Per Rorty, when we say “there are mountains,” we aren’t carving up sections of reality and creating mountains, instead we are simply talking in a way that works for us. First, how do we descriptively cause things that predate human history? He cites a damning example in which Bruno Latour, a well-known French constructivist sociologist, asked how Ramses II could have died in 1213 BC from tuberculosis (as scientists working on the mummy of Ramses claimed), when that bacillus hadn’t been discovered until 1882 AD? While this anecdote is humorous, it points out the ludicrous nature of following this view to its logical end. b266365cd2 . Boghossian is the Silver Professor (and former chair) of Philosophy at New York University. This short book should be required reading for all humanities professors and all who care about presenting sound arguments for a realist epistemology. Currency:. New York: Oxford University Press, 2006. However, the knowledge gained is well worth the additional effort.

Therefore, the real dilemma is between self-refutation and utterances that can only be said to be true in some unintelligible infinite regression. When we conceptually describe something, we cause it to come into existence. Taking a complex concept such as epistemology and distilling it into non-technical language is a daunting task, but Boghossian performs it quite well. In spite of the difficulty inherent in an attempt to meaningfully address the claims of relativism and constructivism in a simple and succinct manner, Paul Boghossian succeeds famously.. Boghossian argues that the key to the success of the relativist/constructivist view is not its philosophical strength, as he believes he has demonstrated several shortcomings throughout the book, rather it is the feeling of satisfaction the cultural relativist appears to derive from being able to claim that any purported knowledge with which they disagree is based upon a social value they do not share and is therefore of no import. Ian R. Per Goodman, we carve reality up with pragmatic concepts; that is, we employ terms to group things by separating them from the rest of reality. It is helpful for us to think of mountains as predating us, but it is not simply true that mountains predated humanity, for in Rorty’s system it never makes sense to say anything is just plain true in an objective sense. Hinh Mai Shiranui 3d > . Thirdly, and Boghossian believes most convincingly, the best argument against fact constructivism is that it violates the law of noncontradiction.
