About This Item

Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1975. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 8vo. [6], vii-xi, [2], 2-323, [2] pp. Grey cloth with gold lettering on the spine. Price of £6.50 on the front flap of the dust jacket. SEP "Epistemology". Unger advocates for radical skepticism, the view that no one can truly know anything. A person can only be said to know something if they are certain of something. They can be certain of fact x only if there is no fact y about which they can be more certain. Since a person cannot be said to know anything, nothing cane be true or false. A person cannot have an emotional attachment to anything. Unger argues that philosophy of language and mind will have to radically be revised in light of his conclusion. A Near Fine book with minor foxing to the top textblock and a tiny bump to the corner of the front board; dust jacket is Near Fine with a spot or two of edge wear.
