BeschreibungContesting much contemporary epistemology and cognitive science, noted philosopher Kenneth M. Sayre argues that, while some cognitive attitudes such as believing take propositions as objects, there are many others (knowing, hoping, fearing, etc.) whose objects are instead states of affairs.
PortraitKenneth M. Sayre is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and the author of fifteen previous books on subjects ranging from artificial intelligence to Platonic dialogues.
PressestimmenThis is an ambitious, indeed an audacious, book ... I do not know of another book of its scope or insight written in the past decade. It is a rare combination of systematic philosophy and ordinary language insights that conjures the diverse images of J. L. Austin and C. I. Lewis. -- Steven Horst, Wesleyan University This is a groundbreaking book... it deserves the highest recommendation for all undergraduate and graduate collections. -- J. White, University of Maine CHOICE, June 1998, Vol.35, No. 10 The book is well-written and engaging. -- Sarah Sawyer, University of Kansas The product of more than 20 years of specialized work in philosophy and cognitive science, this is a groundbreaking book.
