Understanding, Desirability and Truth: Configurative and Evolutionary Perspectives on ‘Understanding’
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This paper examines how human beings may be able to reach certain kinds of understanding. On either side of the how, a cognitive apparatus and evidence will be theoretically presupposed. Though this examination will frequently spill over into the domains of cognition and evidence, there is no presupposition that the solution will be found exclusively in either; rather, answers will be sought in a conceptually unprejudiced how.
