XIV—Aristotle's Two Worlds: Knowledge and Belief inPosterior Analytics 1.33


  • Meeting of the Aristotelian Society held at Senate House, University of London, on 7 June 2010 at 4:15 pm.


At the end of Republic 5, Plato distinguishes epistêmê from doxa, knowledge from belief. In Posterior Analytics 1.33, Aristotle provides his own distinction between epistêmê and doxa. I explore his way of distinguishing them and compare it with Plato's.
