The volume, co-authored by C. Taylor and H. Dreyfus, wants to challenge the dominant epistemic view of knowledge as mediational. Overcoming the narrowness of cartesianism (also in its contemporary versions) the two authors argue for a 'contact' theory by retrieving realism in epistemology as well as within the political debate on multiculturalism. The review critically considers their arguments focusing on their phenomenological analysis of human experience and on their hermeneutic interpretation.
