Neurobiology and epistemology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The biological foundation of intellectual development is discussed and related to the philosophy of knowledge. It is shown that neurobiology can have implications for such epistemological issues as the limits of knowledge, the origin of knowledge, and the validity of knowledge claims based on different kinds of learning. In addition some of the fundamental assumptions involved in the development of scientific knowledge may ultimately be tested for consistency with the empirical observations of neurobiology.
