Three Dialogues on Knowledge

Paul Feyerabend

Basil Blackwell 1991
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992 http://dannyreviews.com/
In Three Dialogues on Knowledge Feyerabend presents his very idiosyncratic views on epistemology in an enthralling series of dialogues based on the Socratic model. The first dialogue is modeled on a university tutorial, with the discussion ranging over the entire field of epistemology. In the second and third dialogues Feyerabend talks with an anonymous interlocutor, giving a vivid presentation of his iconoclastic views on a whole range of subjects.

Fans of Against Method won't be disappointed, and for newcomers to Feyerabend Three Dialogues on Knowledge is just as good a place to start; Feyerabend should be compulsory reading for anyone interested in the philosophy of science.

July 1992
