Making Sense of the World: New Essays on the Philosophy of Understanding

Stephen R. Grimm


This collection offers original work on the nature of understanding by a range of distinguished philosophers. Although some of the essays are by scholars well known for their work on understanding, many of the essays bring entirely new figures to the debate. The main purpose of the volume is twofold: (a) to advance debates in epistemology and the philosophy of science, where work on understanding has recently flourished, and (b) to jumpstart new questions and debates about understanding in other areas of philosophy, such as aesthetics, ethics, and the philosophy of religion.

Keywords: understanding, epistemology, philosophy of science, ethics, philosophy of religion, humanities
