Summary:
'Belief and Truth' explores a Socratic intuition about belief doxa - belief is 'shameful.' In aiming for knowledge, one must aim to get rid of beliefs. Vogt shows how deeply this proposal differs from contemporary views, but that it nevertheless speaks to intuitions we are likely to share with Plato, ancient skeptics, and Stoic epistemologists.
