Epistemology

“Episte­mol­ogy” is the sub­ject mat­ter that deals with truth on a meta level: e.g., ques­tions such as “What is truth?” and “What meth­ods of rea­son­ing are most likely to lead to true be­liefs?” Episte­mol­ogy can be con­sid­ered as a child sub­ject of Ra­tion­al­ity. Many Ar­bital Dis­cus­sion Prac­tices have their roots in a the­sis about episte­mol­ogy—about what forms of rea­son­ing are most likely to lead to true be­liefs—and you may have ended up look­ing at this sub­ject af­ter try­ing to track down how a Dis­cus­sion Prac­tice is jus­tified.
