Knowledge and Reference in Empirical Science by Jody Azzouni

Book Description

Knowledge and Reference in Empirical Science is a fascinating study of the bounds between science and language: in what sense, and of what, does science provide knowledge? Is science an instrument only distantly related to what's real? Can the language of science be used to adequately describe the truth? In this book, Jodi Azziouni investigates the technology of science - the actual forging and exploiting of causal links, between ourselves and what we endeavor to know and understand.

Books By Author Jody Azzouni

Semantic Perception by Jody Azzouni Semantic Perception, Paperback (November 2015)

Humans involuntarily experience physical items as having meaning-properties. Semantic Perception explores this experience-the phenomenology of the understanding of language-in depth. Jody Azzouni shows the many ways that we experience the meaning-properties of language artifacts as independent of the intentions of their makers.

Tracking Reason by Jody Azzouni Tracking Reason, Paperback (July 2008)

Ordinary people - mathematicians among them - grasp when they take something to follow (deductively) from something else. This is the backbone of our self-ascribed ability to reason. This book investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues developed by logicians.

Metaphysical Myths, Mathematical Practice by Jody Azzouni Metaphysical Myths, Mathematical Practice, Paperback (May 2008)

Jody Azzouni argues that mathematical knowledge really is a special kind of knowledge with its own special means of gathering evidence.
