The Foundations of Knowledge [Video]

What is knowledge? What does it depend upon? What are the means of acquiring it?

In this course, given at Objectivist Summer Conference 2016, Harry Binswanger answers these questions and, in doing so, explains the essentials of metaphysics and epistemology from an Objectivist perspective. The course draws on material from his recent book, How We Know: Epistemology on an Objectivist Foundation.

The course addresses such questions as:

  • How is “knowledge” properly defined? — What is the ultimate source of knowledge?

  • Can we trust our senses?

  • What are concepts and how do we form them?
