Knowing By Perceiving offers a focused account of perceptual knowledge, the knowledge that we gain by means of seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and tasting. The dominant tradition in the theory of knowledge seeks to understand knowledge in terms of justified belief. Instead Alan Millar pursues the idea that knowledge is more basic than justified belief. He develops in considerable detail an interpretation of perceptual knowledge in terms of general recognitional abilities, then situates that account within a broader perspective on the theory of knowledge and philosophical method more generally. The upshot is an original exploration of fundamental philosophical themes.
