How can human beings, who are liable to error, possess knowledge, since the grounds on which we believe do not rule out that we are wrong? Andrea Kern argues that we can disarm this skeptical doubt by conceiving knowledge as an act of a ratio-nal capacity. In this book, she develops a metaphysics of the mind as existing through knowledge of itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is an excellent book. It is lucid, forceful, and rich in thought-provoking ideas. I believe it is one of the most interesting and potentially significant contributions to the field of epistemology of the last decade. Given the richness of its discussion, however, Kern's book will be interesting not just to professional epistemologists, but to a wide philosophical readership.--Matthew Boyle, University of Chicago
This is an extraordinary, daring book. It is an original and powerful contribution to epistemology that reorients, or gets beneath, a number of debates that have shaped the discipline in the last few decades. It reaches beyond the limits of epistemology, locating its results concerning human knowledge within a metaphysics of the human mind, a metaphysics that articulates the self-understanding internal to our existence.--Christoph Menke, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universit�t, Frankfurt am Main
