Kulp provides a thorough examination of John Deweys influential arguments against traditional theories of knowledge- in particular against a traditional spectator theory of knowledge, the thesis that knowing is fundamentally a passive beholdingMoreKulp provides a thorough examination of John Deweys influential arguments against traditional theories of knowledge- in particular against a traditional spectator theory of knowledge, the thesis that knowing is fundamentally a passive beholding relation between the knower and the object known.Kulp presents Deweys arguments with unusual clarity, but, ultimately, finds them deficient.

He also lays the basis for a defense of a spectator theory of having knowledge, a basis that incorporates important considerations about introspective knowledge. American philosophers have recently revived their interest in Deweys work. Such philosophers as well as students and scholars involved with the study of American thought and schools of philosophy will find Kulps book extremely useful.
