This landmark collection of essays by six renowned philosophers explores the implications of the contentious realism/antirealism debate for epistemology. The essays examine issues such as whether epistemology needs to be realist, the bearing of a realist conception of truth on epistemology, and realism and antirealism in terms of a pragmatist conception of epistemic justification. Richard Rorty's essay provides a critical commentary on the other five.
"The papers in this volume stem from a conference, 'The implications of realism and antirealism for epistemology' held at Santa Clara University in February 1993"--Acknowledgments. Includes bibliographical references and index.
