I would like to narrow down my study of philosophy to epistemology.
It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to draw a hard and fast line between epistemology and other branches of philosophy.
Epistemology specifically studies knowledge and what we believe.
He saw that the theories of the origin of knowledge in idealistic epistemology are unsound.
If self-consciousness be treated in this objective fashion, then we pass naturally from epistemology to metaphysics or ontology.
In his logic, and especially in his epistemology, Wundt appears as a mediator between Hume and Kant, but with more leaning to the latter.
The result of the foregoing, however, is to show that, as soon as epistemology draws its conclusion, it becomes metaphysics; the theory of knowledge passes into a theory of being.
This introduces us to the second part of the question we are seeking to determine, namely the relation of epistemology to metaphysics.
Without prejudice, then, to the claim of epistemology to constitute the central philosophic discipline, we may simply note its liability to be pressed too far.
Wundt's comprehensive view that logic looks backwards to psychology and forward to epistemology was hundreds of years ago one of the many discoveries of Aristotle.
But appearing with these thinkers as the problem of perception, epistemology widens its scope and becomes, in Kant's hands, the question of the possibility of experience in general.
Afterr studyingepistemology,Stephanie was able to differentiate between her beliefs and opinions.
