The Search for Understanding


R. L. Franklin

This book explores a large gap in English-speaking philosophy by investigating the neglected concept of understanding and linking it to the much-discussed concept of knowledge. Focusing on the process of coming to understand, it concludes that understanding is in fact the most important form of knowledge. It then further explores the important implications that arise both within philosophy and outside it. Because of its relevance to problems faced by many disciplines, it is written without technical terms in a style accessible to non-philosophers.
