Knowledge is much valued. But what exactly is it, how do we get it, and do we have as much of it as we like to think? Join Dr Doug Adeney to explore some classic arguments for scepticism such as those of Descartes, and some problematic issues such as our supposed knowledge of the regularities of nature and of the world outside ourselves.
Douglas Allen Adeney is a Hon. Senior Fellow, Philosophy, University of Melbourne, recently retired from the Melbourne University Philosophy Department. Doug has lectured in Australia and overseas and returns to CAE again to share his knowledge, passion and insight into the fascinating world of Philosophy.
