PortraitTimothy M. Mosteller (Ph.D. University of Miami) teaches philosophy at Biola University, La Mirada, CA.
Pressestimmen'Timothy Mosteller both addresses the issue of relativism - a basic issue in epistemology - and endeavors to sort out the morass of discussions of the issue by the three prominent contemporary philosophers, Alasdair MacIntyre, Hilary Putnam, and Richard Rorty ... Mosteller's [work] takes on a hermeneutical task of immense ambition, as well as an analytical task central to epistemology ... It sheds new light on epistemological relativism ... It both clarifies the role (or non-role) of relativism in the work of those three philosophers, and contributes to the overall understanding and assessment of their broader philosophical contributions.' Harvey Siegel, Professor of Philosophy, University of Miami
