On Hegel's Epistemology and Contemporary Philosophy
Aimed at specialists as well as graduate and select undergraduate students, this study centers on Hegel's important, but neglected, theory of knowledge. Professor Rockmore interprets Hegel as reacting to the Kantian effort to reformulate epistemology in the wake of what Kant contends is the failure of earlier, dogmatic theories. Recent work has shown that Hegel's epistemology is a good deal more respectable than has usually been thought. Rockmore's aim is to continue that work in order to bring Hegel into the main discussion of knowledge. Rockmore's main argument for the relevance of Hegel's theory to the problem of knowledge is that with the apparent failure of foundationalism, Hegel's antifoundationalist theory that sees knowledge as perspectival and historical supplies two items helpful to advance the epistemological discussion.
