Knowing Our Limits

Nathan Ballantyne

  • Draws insights from philosophy and the social and cognitive sciences to explain how we can better distinguish what we know and don't know
  • Defends an approach to truth-seeking that revives ideas from philosophers such as Montaigne, Pascal, and Russell
  • Advances current debates in social epistemology about disagreement, biases, and expertise
  • Encourages us to make our judgments about controversial matters more responsive to evidence in an age of partisan confidence and polarized punditry
