6: Knowledge and Classical Islamic Philosophy - a podcast by Eric Roark

:: ::

This episode of the egg timer continues on the theme of knowledge from last week's episode.  But a shift in focus is made toward the work of the 11th century Islamic thinker, Al-Ghazali.  As we see, Al-Ghazali masterfully demonstrated the case for epistemic skepticism roughly 400 years before Descartes is often credited with accomplishing this feat.
