Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This is philosophy of the highest order. Several of the most fundamental and challenging philosophical problems are discussed with analytical rigor, subtlety, originality, technical sophistication, detailed familiarity with the vast relevant literature, and lucidity. What I find most exciting is the way Murphey is able to make a powerful case for pragmatic naturalism and natural realism on the basis of an amazing mastery of the vast recent literature in diverse fields. Anyone interested in basic issues of epistemology and metaphysics will find the discussion fascinating. "--H. Hare

"This book is magnificently written, is solidly grounded in the literature, and carefully establishes its main points. Here is a book that is needed right now. It is an important, well-argued book and one I am eager to have. It is fascinating!" -- Ralph McInerny

"This is an impressive book. The author is a clear thinker and writes very effectively. Moreover, the topic is central not only to issues of historiography, but also to much of the contemporary discussions which have to do with knowledge." -- Jorge J. E. Gracia

"This is an extraordinary piece of work. It is a carefully argued, highly original piece of scholarship. The book is one long argument for a realistic interpretation of the writing and value of history. One must call it a learned, clear, coherent, persuasive work. To read it is to recognize its value." --P. Dougherty, Editor, The Review of Metaphysics

Murray G. Murphey is Professor of American Civilization at the University of Pennsylvania.
