From a basis of the absence of all knowledge and assumptions, this series will attempt to build a rational foundation for the pursuit of knowledge and philosophy. If successful, this foundation will then be used to discover what can be known of reality, and to develop philosophy consistent with these foundations and the knowledge the lead to.
So, to begin, drop all your assumptions and everything you think or believe you know². You must distrust everything that you know, think, feel, or perceive, for it may all just be a hallucination, a dream, an elaborate ruse, all of which are an unsuitable foundation on which to build anything but more illusions and delusions.
1. “Logic, Knowledge, and Philosophy” – The series name.
2. Not literally, of course. It would be difficult to proceed if you forgot how to read and use the web. Or to feed yourself, for that matter.
