Synopsis

We know facts, but we also know how to do things. To know a fact is to know that a proposition is true. But does knowing how to ride a bike amount to knowledge of propositions? This is a challenging question and one that deeply divides the contemporary landscape. A Critical Introduction to Knowledge How introduces, outlines, and critically evaluates various contemporary debates surrounding the nature of knowledge how. Carter and Poston show that situating the debate over the nature of knowledge how in other epistemological debates provides new ways to make progress. In particular, Carter and Poston explore the question of what knowledge how involves, and how it might come apart from propositional knowledge, by engaging with key epistemological topics including epistemic luck, knowledge of language, epistemic value, virtue epistemology and social epistemology. New frontiers for research on knowledge how are also explored relating to the internalism - externalism debate as well as embodied and extended knowledge.



A Critical Introduction to Knowledge How provides an accessible introduction to the main arguments in this important and thriving debate suited for undergraduates and postgraduates in philosophy and related areas. A strength of the book is its methodology which places a premium on placing the debates over knowledge how in a broader conversation over the nature of knowledge. This book also offers an opinionated discussion of various lines of argument which will be of interest to professional philosophers as well.
