FACULTY NEWS: Department of Philosophy
Michael Pace, Ph.D., assistant professor, Department of Philosophy, Wilkinson College, has an article appearing in the most recent issue of Pacific Philosophical Quarterly. “Perceptual Foundational Justification and the Problem of the Speckled Hen” criticizes several prominent theories of how experiences give us knowledge of the world. (The criticism involves a thought experiment about seeing a hen with many speckles.) He then defends a novel theory of perceptual knowledge that solves the problem.
