In this book, Jason Stanley argues that knowing how to do something amounts to knowing a truth about the world.

The goal of inquiry is to acquire knowledge of truths about the world  . In this book, Jason Stanley argues that knowing how to do something amounts to knowing a truth about the world. When you learned how to swim, what happened is that you learned some truths about swimming. Knowledge of these truths is what gave you knowledge of how to swim. Something similar occurred with The goal of inquiry is to acquire knowledge of truths about the world.

He has also written for a popular audience at the New York Times philosophy blog "The Stone".

Jason Stanley’sHow Propaganda Works (Stanley 2015) is a timely and insightful investigation into. Toward the end of his book, Stanley demonstrates his approach by arguing how elites seek. to go largely unnoticed in a democratic context. to instil flawed ideology in negatively privileged groups through the institutions of media and. education (though it is only the latter that he expands upon in detail).

My 2015 book How Propaganda Works and How Fascism Works are squarely based on texts written by Black American philosophers, as is an ever greater proportion of my teaching. When people say that universities have African-American Studies because of identity politics, I have to just laugh.

Jason Stanley How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them New York: Random House, 2018. Jason Stanley, a Jew who is a professor of philosophy at Yale, has recently published a book in which he seeks to explain how fascism takes root in society. With the conceptual complexity and intellectual depth of an MSNBC talk show, the author finds that–surprise!–the precursors to fascism are to be found everywhere in Trump’s America, and–surprise!–they are the same things that Jews have been saying about fascism (real and imagined) for about a century.

The goal of inquiry is to acquire knowledge of truths about the world. In this book, Jason Stanley argues that knowing how to do something amounts to knowing a truth about the world. When you learned how to swim, what happened is that you learned some truths about swimming. Knowledge of these truths is what gave you knowledge of how to swim. Something similar occurred with every other activity that you now know how to do, such as riding a bicycle or cooking a meal. Of course, when you learned how to swim, you didn't learn just any truth about swimming. You learned a special kind of truth about swimming, one that answers the question, "How could you swim?" Know How develops an account of the kinds of answers to questions, knowledge of which explains skilled action. Drawing on work in epistemology, philosophy of mind, ethics, action theory, philosophy of language, linguistic semantics, and cognitive neuroscience, Stanley presents a powerful case that it is our success as inquirers that explains our capacity for skillful engagement with the world.
