Philosophers have traditionally sought objective knowledge: knowledge of things whose existence does not depend on one's conceiving of them. Philosophy After Objectivity uses lessons from debates over objective knowledge to characterize the kinds of reasons pertinent to philosophical and other theoretical views. It argues that we cannot meet skeptics' typical demands for non-question begging support for claims to objective truth, and that, therefore, we should not regard our supporting reasons as resistant to skeptical challenges.

Review quote

Moser's book should draw a large response. It deserves careful study by epistemologists, metaphysicians, and anyone interested in the philosophy of language. * The Review of Metaphysics * This carefully reasoned book deserves a place in graduate collections. * American Library Association * This book is an excellent and wide-ranging work that tackles deep issues in metaphilosophy, and brings to certain "postmodern" themes the precision and clarity of an outstanding analytic philosopher. * The Philosophical Review *
