A fresh approach to a long-standing issue in epistemology.Choice

Gupta’s book is a philosophical supernova, throwing bright new light on a number of important problems. It proposes a novel answer to the age-old question of how conscious experience contributes to the rationality of empirical beliefs. Vast in scope, breathtakingly original, outstandingly rigorous, and infused with a relentless intelligence, this book will be welcomed by epistemologists, metaphysicians, and philosophers of language, logic, mind, and perception.—Christopher Hill, Brown University

This is a wonderful book. Anil Gupta offers a brilliant logical reconstruction of empirical reasoning that highlights the interdependence between the contributions of perceptual experience and of the subject’s antecedent world view, and elucidates precisely his novel conceptions of experiential presentation and perceptual appearance. His own original and compelling account is clearly located in relation to important alternative approaches, to the great illumination and benefit of anyone working in the area.—Bill Brewer, King’s College London

We asked him about his impassioned new book: why he wrote it, how it’s optimistic, and what we need to do to continue making progress on creating an equitable world.
