Summary
"Reason, Truth, and Reality addresses two fundamental questions: what sort of world do we inhabit, and what moral obligations do we have? To answer these questions Dan Goldstick mounts a bold contemporary defence of pre-Kantian rationalism based on a substantive characterization of reason in its deductive, inductive, and ethical functioning. He argues that if reason so characterized is to track the truth reliably, consequences contrary to empiricism follow concerning change, causality, and obligation."--Jacket
