Three Dialogues on Knowledge

Paul Feyerabend

Basil Blackwell 1991
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
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
