Epistemic insouciance is the epistemic vice behind bullshit in Harry Frankfurt’s sense. Epistemic insouciance, which consists in a casual lack of concern about whether one’s beliefs have any basis in reality or adequate evidential support, is different from epistemic malevolence.

An individual's attitudes and beliefs concerning the nature of truth and knowledge, termed "epistemological posture," is developed as a psychological variable and compared to other variables such as dogmatism/open-mindedness.

Epistemology is a science devoted to the discovery of the proper methods of acquiring and validating knowledge (Ayn Rand) Man is neither infallible nor omniscient; if he were, a discipline such as epistemology—the theory of knowledge—would not be.

Engaging with ontology and epistemology can lead to a benign disruption of, for example, a rational choice theorist's belief in the predictive capability of political science through highlighting the open and contingent nature of the social world, or a ‘malestream’ political scientist's assumptions of objectivity through feminist by: Epistemology is the philosophical project of formulating such an explanation.

The origins, nature, methods, and limits of human knowing are an outgrowth of his long preoccupation with genetic origins and environmental development of logical thought in children.

Piaget has lucidly and brilliantly broken new ground and laid down the scientific basis for. As reflected in Table 1, an evaluativist level of epistemological understanding is necessary if there is to be any point — any perceived value — to the intellectual skills of inquiry, analysis, and argument that are widely accepted as the most important objectives of education (Kuhn, a, Kuhn, in press).
