The limits of realism

Author: Tim Button
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Tim Button explores the relationship between minds, words, and world. He argues that the two main strands of scepticism are deeply related and can be overcome, but that there is a limit to how much we can show. We must position ourselves somewhere between internal realism and external realism, and we cannot hope to say exactly where.
