?Son problemáticos para el veritismo la naturaleza y el valor del entendimiento?
Fernández, Miguel ángel;
Diánoia , 2010,
Abstract: this paper examines a series of recent objections to veritistic epistemology that aim to show that it cannot account for the nature and value of understanding. section 1 formulates the central tenets of veritistic epistemology and makes a few more preliminary remarks. sections 2 and 3 discuss objections that attempt to show that cognitive states implicated in understanding have a sui generis nature which makes the veritistic model of evaluation inapplicable to them. sections 4 and 5 examine objections that aim to show that there are aspects of understanding which are epistemically valuable, whose value cannot be explained in veritistic terms. section 6 sums up results of the discussion: none of the objections discussed succeeds in revealing any explanatory deficit of veritism with respect to the nature and value of understanding.
Son problemáticos para el veritismo la naturaleza y el valor del entendimiento? Are the Nature and Value of Understanding Problematic for Veritism?
Miguel ángel Fernández
Diánoia , 2010,
Abstract: Este trabajo examina una serie de objeciones recientes a la epistemología veritista en el sentido de que no es capaz de explicar la naturaleza y el valor del entendimiento. La sección 1 formula las tesis centrales de una epistemología veritista y da algunos preliminares más. Las secciones 2 y 3 discuten objeciones que intentan mostrar que los estados cognitivos implicados en el entendimiento tienen una naturaleza sui generis a la que el modelo veritista de evaluación no puede aplicarse. Las secciones 4 y 5 examinan objeciones que intentan mostrar que hay aspectos del entendimiento que son epistémicamente valiosos y cuyo valor no puede explicarse en términos veritistas. La sección 6 resume los resultados de la discusión: ninguna de las objeciones examinadas consigue revelar algún déficit explicativo del veritismo con respecto a la naturaleza o el valor del entendimiento.

Houellebecq and the Novel as Site of Epistemic Rebellion
Delphine Grass
Opticon1826 , 2006, DOI: 10.5334/opt.010609
Abstract: Michel Houellebecq is a writer who cultivates an incongruous literary garden, where the necessity of describing contemporary objects as equipment for the manufacture of individuals can be said to precede his concern for literary conventions. This has been at the centre of much criticism formulated around Houellebecq’s novels. One book in particular by Eric Naulleau called Au Secour, Houellebecq Revient! attacks his novels on the grounds that their success relies on his charming the reader by using recognisable elements of everyday life and incorporating them in the novels, in such a way that they could no longer be distinguished from the world of everyday life.

How Do You Know What You Know: Epistemology in Software Engineering  [PDF]
Oluwatosin Ogundare
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2017.102010
Abstract: Ubiquitous computing emphasizes the notion of automation in the daily human experience. With the ease, comes the responsibility of knowing, the knowledge of the intrinsic nature of the machine and the evolution of human-computer interaction (HCI). The quest for knowledge is engrained in the act of questioning itself. “How?” “What? “Why?” dominates the vocabulary of every scientist and models the endlessness of our natural inquisitiveness. For example, an interaction of software systems in the case of a user who withdraws money from the ATM and automatically gets a text message and an e-mail containing notification of the transaction, engenders questions about how it all works; in technical terms, the nature of the special science that enables wireless communications. Knowledge that derives from aphorisms or other self-evident truths is easier to acknowledge, for example, the knowledge of “multiplication” is justified by the truthfulness of “addition”—the Apriori. However, in Software Engineering (SE), the Apriori is more obscure. The investigation of the nature of knowledge in SE requires an expansion of the general idea of the Apriori in establishing knowledge.
School Evaluation: A Possible Dialogue between the History and Epistemology  [PDF]
Aldo Sena de Oliveira, Linsmar Nascimento Lenartovicz
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.68014
Abstract: This article approaches the school evaluation according to historical and epistemological assumptions and the strategies inserted from its genesis to its application in the context of the contemporary school. The analysis is based on a historical narrative that contextualizes the concept of evaluation and its meaning as practices established from the beginning of humanity, such as its possible origin in China. We report the construction of new meanings for evaluation and its constitution as a stage in the educational process. In addition to the qualitative assignments, the evaluative course that culminates in the development of quantification forms, explained in the docimology, content orientation psychometry and in the intellectual quotient (IQ) analysis, is reported.
Childhood and Scientific Literacy: Contributions of History and Epistemology  [PDF]
Aldo Sena de Oliveira, Vanessa Lima Bertolazi Simon, Alexandre Simon
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.68017
Abstract: In this article we present some narratives about childhood from the perspective of history and epistemology. The theme will be interwoven with the discourses that permeate multiple debates that are present in the context of contemporary education, especially from the point of view of scientific literacy. The intention is not to exhaust the theme, given its complexity, but to present some guiding axes from the dialogue where we allow ourselves to understand childhood beyond its ontological meaning and allow us to understand the child as a socio-historical and cultural subject.
Religious Epistemology in John Hick’s Philosophy: A Nigerian Appreciation  [PDF]
Olusegun Noah Olawoyin
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2016.62019
Abstract: John Hick is well-known among philosophers and theologians for his philosophy of religious pluralism. Before proposing his theory of religious pluralism, however, he has made major contributions in religious epistemology and other religio-philosophical issues. His later philosophy of religious pluralism is based on his earlier proposal on religious epistemology. Hick affirmed that although religious statements are cognitive, the world is religiously ambiguous. This paper argues that Nigeria as a country riddled with religious conflicts can benefit from religious epistemology of John Hick. Using conceptual analytic method of philosophy to present Hick’s religious epistemology and applicatory technique to propose how the epistemology can be appropriated in Nigeria, the paper argues that such religious epistemology will result in tolerance and peace.
The Philosophical Foundations of Psychiatry in the Ancient Greece  [PDF]
José E. Mu?oz-Negro, Juan F. Mula-Ponce, Josefa M. López-Pérez, José Pablo Martínez-Barbero, Jorge A. Cervilla
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.83020
Abstract: The object of study of Psychiatry is hybrid, that is, it is both natural and social. It combines the methods of natural Sciences and those of social Sciences. Currently, Psychiatry is the branch of Medicine where epistemological and hermeneutical conflicts are more than evident; it is the medical discipline where this debate is most intense and problematic. However, the conceptual foundations of all these debates and conflicts are already preconfigured within the framework of the Greek philosophy of the Classical period. Without knowing these conceptual foundations it is impossible to adequately clarify all these conflicting aspects. During the period of Classical Greece it was the time when the conceptual foundations and rationale of the tekné iatriké (of which Psychiatry was and is a part) were established as well as the theoretical principles of epistemological issues such as the validity of categories, the controversy between diagnostic categories and psychopathological dimensions, the approach towards both subjectivity and phenomenology, the inquiry for Psychopathology, the concept of mental health, the possibilities and limits of the scientific method in Psychiatry, the role of Psychotherapy and, naturally, some key ethical issues in mental health, such as the existence of the stigma on psychiatric disorders and all of the problems raised by the coercitive practices. To answer all of these questions, a review of the literature on this topic has been made in this paper, as well as a discussion and analysis of the key points of the epistemological and ethical debate.
Epispemología para los Odontólogos
Galarraga Rodríguez,Nelly R;
Acta Odontológica Venezolana , 2004,
Abstract: the study of the epistemology, provides us the foundations on which operate the theories and the investigation; as professionals of the health we are usually inclined toward analytic procedures, looking for causal connections, but the conception of the nature of knowledge is much wider and our look can arrive as far as the horizon, for this reason we present this theoric and descriptive study, especially to dentists with the purpose of motivate them to read and to improbé their knowledge, on a topic that we estimate is important and useful, when thinking about an investigation or simply to carry out a reading.
