This book is an extended argument about what epistemologists are missing when they presume that a 'theory of knowledge' is nothing more than a 'model of the mind,' or when they presume to naturalize epistemology only by advertising to cognitive science. Drawing on recent work by such sociolinguists as Dell Hymes and Erving Goffman and epistemologists Hilary Kornblith and Alvin Goldman, Jane Duran seeks to heighten awareness of relevant areas of the social sciences among those interested in contemporary theory of knowledge while, at the same time, providing social scientists with an understanding of what philosophers mean by matters epistemological.
