Knowledge and the State of Nature, Paperback (January 1999)
Edward Craig argues that the standard philosophical project of analysing the concept of knowledge has radical defects, and he offers a more illuminating approach, which builds up the concept from a hypothesis about the social function of knowledge and the needs that it fulfils.
Mind of God and the Works of Man, Paperback (December 1996)» View all books by Edward Craig
Edward Craig surveys the history of modern thought, and argues that it is dominated by two pictures of man. One portrays human beings as made in the image of God; the other sees us as autonomous creators of our own environment and values. Dr Craig traces their various embodiments in the philosophy and literature of the last four centuries.
