We know facts, but we also know how to do things. Knowledge of facts amounts to knowledge of propositions. But does knowledge of how to ride a bike amount to knowledge of propositions? A Critical Introduction to Knowledge-How introduces, outlines, and critically evaluates the contemporary debates surrounding the subject of knowing how.
Assessing whether knowledge-how and knowledge-that have the same epistemic properties, J. Adam Carter and Ted Poston introduce and explore a range of recent debates in epistemology, including: cognitive achievement, epistemic luck, knowledge of language, epistemic value, and social epistemology. Explaining why epistemological arguments about epistemic states should inform our linguistic ascriptions of them, Carter and Poston also explore new frontiers for research on knowledge-how, including perceptual justification, internalism, embodied knowledge, iterated knowledge and knowledge of technical artefacts.
Situating discussions in other prominent debates in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and logic and offering a thorough understanding of some core issues in contemporary epistemology, A Critical Introduction to Knowledge-How presents the main arguments of this important and thriving debate to advanced philosophy undergraduates and postgraduates.
