Description:

The volume Evidence and research: a pragmatic reconstruction of the epistemology, of the author Susan Haack, in a translation by Catalina-Daniela Raducu that treats, during two parts, Evidence and research and Selected essays, the epistemology from the perspective of a pragmatic reconstruction. In the introductory part, the author presents foundationism as the new theory about the formation and justification of beliefs. Part I of the paper discusses aspects regarding the relationship between foundationism and coherence, undermining of foundationism and destabilizing coherence, elaboration of foundationism, evidence of senses, through rejections and conjectures. Also during this first part are debated the clarification of naturalism, an evidence against reliability, the overthrow of revolutionary scientism and vulgar pragmatism and the ratification of fundamentalism.
