4 Knowledge & its Limits Roush TuTh 11-12:30 155 Donner

In this course we think about knowledge: How do we know we’re not in a Matrix? Is our knowledge built on a foundation or are we floating on a raft, or does our knowledge have the structure of a teepee? What are the requirements for knowledge? How much do we need to trust others in order to know? Can we trust ourselves? Can conspiracy theories ever be justified? Do animals have knowledge?
