Cambridge University Press, 2004. — 210 p.In Common Sense, Noah Lemos presents a strong defense of the common sense tradition, the view that we may take as data for philosophical inquiry many of the thingswe ordinarily thinkwe know. Lemos discusses the main features of that tradition as expounded by Thomas Reid, G. E. Moore, and Roderick Chisholm. For a long time, common sense philosophers have been subject to two main objections: that they fail to give any non-circular argument for the reliability of memory and perception, and that they pick out instances of knowledge without knowing a criterion for knowledge. Lemos defends the appeal to what we ordinarily think we know in both epistemology and ethics, and thus rejects the charge that common sense is dogmatic, unphilosophical, or viciously question-begging. Written in a clear and engaging style, Common Sense will appeal to students and philosophers in epistemology and ethics. Noah Lemos is Professor of Philosophy at DePauw University.
