“What is knowledge and how do we know things?  Moreover, how do we know that we know them, in view of the doubts which the philosophical sceptic casts on our grasp of facts?  The presentation of the sceptic’s arguments leads here to a general discussion of the topic of scepticism and certainty.  This is followed by a detailed examination of the philosophical problems of perception, memory, and out knowledge of other minds, which occupies the greater part of the book.  In the course of the discussion, Professor Ayer has also attempted to throw light upon the nature of philosophical method and upon some of the problems connected with time, causality, and personal identity.”
