Kawalec's monograph is a unique defence of the programme of inductive common sense, built at the start by way of Rudolf Carnap within the Fifties and Jaakko Hintikka within the Nineteen Sixties. It revives inductive good judgment by way of bringing out the underlying epistemology. the most energy of the paintings is its hyperlink among inductive common sense and modern discussions of epistemology. via this attitude the writer succeeds to shed new mild at the value of inductive good judgment. The ensuing structural reliabilist conception propounds the view that justification supervenes on syntactic and semantic houses of sentences as justification-bearers. The declare is made that this units up a real substitute to the present theories of justification. Kawalec substantiates this declare via confronting structural reliabilism with a few epistemological difficulties. Kawalec writes in a transparent demeanour, makes his theses and arguments particular, and offers abundant bibliographical references.
