Yes, But How Do You Know?

Yes, But How Do You Know? is an invitation to think philosophically through the use of sceptical ideas. Hetherington challenges our complacency and asks us to reconsider what we think we know. How much can we discover about our surroundings? What sort of beings are we? Can we trust our own reasoning? Is science all it is cracked up to be? Can we acquire knowledge of God? Are even the contents of our own minds transparent? In inviting, lucid prose, Hetherington addresses these questions and more, using scepticism to illuminate many perennial philosophical puzzles.

About the Author

Stephen Hetherington is Professor of Philosophy at the University of New South Wales. He is the author of many books in epistemology, including Self-Knowledge: Beginning Philosophy Right Here and Now (Broadview, 2007) and Knowledge Puzzles: An Introduction to Epistemology (Westview, 1996).


"I'll let you in on a secret: Nobody has ever become a philosopher simply by reading about philosophy. You may not know how to think about what you have read. And if an ordinary teacher tells you what to think about the text, you may not know how to think about that! But, if you have Stephen Hetherington as your teacher, chances are you will become philosophical. His new book is not only a masterful introduction to the subject, technically correct, cleverly structured and a supremely enjoyable read. It's the most impressive guide to becoming philosophical I've seen." - Claudio de Almeida, Professor, Department of Philosophy and Human Sciences, Pontifical Catholic University at Porto Alegre, Brazil "This is a lucid, entertaining, and engaging introduction to philosophy and philosophical thinking. It brings sceptical ideas to life and shows the importance of taking such ideas seriously. Highly recommended." - Quassim Cassam, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick
