Knowledge and the State . Craig has written one of the most inspired works of epistemology in several decades, a compact masterpiece sketching a new way to do epistemology and brimming with illuminating concrete proposals. The book is powerfully, densely argued, and it is exquisitely written. Any future work in epistemology must reckon with this unique book. Interesting and frequentlly offers a new perspective on old problems. Edward Craig is at Churchill College.

Light is thrown on much that philosophers have written about knowledge, about its analysis and the obstacles to its analysis (such as the counter-examples of EdmundGettier), and on the debate over scepticism.

In this illuminating study Craig argues that the standard practice of analyzing the concept of knowledge has radical defects-arbitrary restriction of the subject matter and risky theoretical presuppositions. He proposes a new approach similar to the ''state-of-nature'' method found in political theory, building the concept up from a hypothesis about its social function and the needs it fulfills.

Craig develops an alternative approach, akin to the ‘state of nature’ method in political theory, which builds up the concept from a hypothesis about the social function of knowledge and the needs that it fulfils. Included in Craig's attempt to understand the concept is the endeavour to explain, in the light of his own theory, much that philosophers have written about knowledge, its analysis, the obstacles to its analysis, and scepticism.

The standard philosophical project of analysing the concept of knowledge has radical defects in its arbitrary restriction of the subject matter, and its risky theoretical presuppositions.
