Summary
This book is concerned with the alleged capacity of the human mind to arrive at beliefs and knowledge about the world on the basis of pure reason without any dependence on sensory experience. Most recent philosophers reject the view and argue that all substantive knowledge must be sensory in origin. Laurence BonJour provocatively reopens the debate by presenting the most comprehensive exposition and defense of the rationalist view that a priori insight is a genuine basis for knowledge. As well as offering a systematic defense of a priori justification, BonJour provides a sustained critique of competing empiricist theories that either claim that a priori justification exists but is limited to mere tautologies or deny the existence of a priori justification altogether. The book concludes with a rationalist solution to the classical problem of induction
