This book argues that it is not obvious what we means by saying our beliefs and assertions are 'truth-directed'. Do we weaken our notion of a belief if we deal with radical scepticism without surrendering to idealism? This book defends a radically new 'ecological' model of knowledge, examining what might happen if we abandoned genuine belief.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Aiming at Truth is high class philosophy. Nicholas Unwin argues for an iconoclastic position with clarity, elegance and wit. It is refreshing to read a book that grapples with the challenges presented by relativism and scepticism with such seriousness and depth.' - Julian Dodd, Department of Philosophy, University of Manchester, UK

'Nicholas Unwin's Aiming at Truth is an ambitious and wide-ranging book.' - Stephen R. Grimm, Mind
