About this book

Epistemic Reasoning and the Mental integrates the epistemology of reasoning and philosophy of mind. By examining the fundamental competencies involved in reasoning, Gerken argues that reasoning depends on the external environment in ways that are both surprising and epistemologically important.

About the authors

Mikkel Gerken is Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, UK. He works in epistemology and philosophy of mind but has broad research interests which include philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of language, philosophy of science and philosophical methodology.

Reviews

"(Gerken)...displays obvious mastery of both the philosophy of mind and epistemology, and his treatment is extremely thorough... ...he convincingly makes a case for the importance of the methodology or pursuing questions in the philosophy of mind and epistemology in tandem. Anyone interested in these areas of philosophy, and their intersection, would do well to read this book."
