I argue that standard economics assumes a ‘classical’ view of the world in which knowledge and action are independent, but that we live in a complex reflexive world in which knowledge and action are interdependent. I argue that Soros's view provides a reflexivity critique of the efficient market hypothesis seen as depending on untenable claims about the nature of random phenomena and the nature of economic agents.

Full Title:Common Sense, Science and Scepticism: A Historical Introduction to the Theory of Knowledge. ISBN-13:978-0521436250. Sceptics object that rational self-evidence is no guarantee of truth. This book is an introductory and historically-based survey of the debate, siding for the most part with scepticism to show that the desire to vanquish it has often led to doctrines of idealism or anti-realism. Scepticism, science and common sense produce another view, fallibilism or critical rationalism: although we can have little or no certain knowledge, as the sceptics maintain, we can and do have plenty of conjectural knowledge.

Common Sense, Science an. .has been added to your Cart. This is the best introduction to epistemology that I have read. Musgrave writes with clarity and grace, taking the reader to the heart the theory of knowledge. Unlike most introductory texts or short histories, which merely summarize the conclusions of great philosophers, "Common Sense, Science, and Scepticism" focuses on the arguments of the philosophers. Thus, the book is an excellent introduction to what it means to "do" philosophy. The text is rewarding, and anyone interested in philosophy can read it with profit.

Can we know anything for certain? There are those who think we can (traditionally labeled the "dogmatists") and those who think we cannot (traditionally labeled the "skeptics").

Alan Musgrave is a good writer and the book is both interesting for the expirienced and those new to philosophy. It should be noted though that the book is written by a follower of Karl Popper's critical rationalism and that it beacause of that sometimes differ in its conclusions from mainstream analytic philosophy, mostly in the last chapter. So it's a quite god introduction to epistemology and its history but also a brilliant introduction to critical rationalist epistemology.

Musgraves introduction to epistemology is great! the problems discussed are very well set out. Musgrave writes clearly and is easy to read.
Plus, hes autographed my book!

BlessСhild
An excellent introduction for those coming to epistemology for the first time. The author avoids potentially confusing formulations of the issues and generally presents the various positions well.
