Once I establish the theory of knowledge in chapter 1, I develop the most fundamental insights of the book using proofs — arguments that do not depend on the weight of evidence. An argument that depends on the weight of evidence will never be conclusive. The type of argument that I seek entails defining the relevant concepts, analyzing their nature, and then drawing forth implications using the rules of logic as everyone intuitively understands them. To give you a feel for this, I present a few examples in the menu to the left.
