Is Understanding a Species of Knowledge
- 人文学院－已发表论文 
当代知识论学者对理解的探究热情日益高涨。其中涉及理解是否是一种知识的争论。理解知识说的主要代表人物格林姆指出,理解是一种know-how,是一种因果知识。这一主张遭到了来自普理查德、扎格泽伯斯基、卡凡维格等人的质疑。尽管格林姆对这些质疑作出了回应,但其主张仍有一些不足。"理解的融贯知识论"认为理解是各类知识的融贯混合体,这一理论不仅有足够的理论张力,还能为行动提供好的向导。Today more and more epistemologists show their interests on the theory of the understanding, including whether understanding is a species of knowledge. Stephen R. Grimm saw understanding as know- how, a kind of causal knowledge. However, Pritchard, Zagzebski, Kvanvig objected what Grimm said. Though Grimm gave some replies, his theory has some other problems. Then a theory of understanding as the coherence of knowledge arise, it holds that varies kinds of knowledge constitute understanding. This theory not only has enough theory tension, but also can provide rational guidance for actions.
