Broken Dreams

Reflections on Reason, Knowledge, and Power

Series:

T. Carlos Jacques

Broken Dreams is an exploration of the intellectual ambitions of traditional philosophy and their passing. The path of this journey is confined within the bounds of epistemology. The work presents a critical analysis of the conditions that must be satisfied to meet the requirements of a rational account of belief justification. It takes the reader from modern classical epistemology, in the form of foundationalism and coherentism, through the more recent efforts to naturalize epistemology, and concludes with an examination of the works of Bruno Latour and Michel Foucault. Epistemology thus gives way to genealogies of knowledge.
