Theory of Knowledge as a Foundation of the Humanities

With this fellowship, I will develop innovative interactions between my regular undergraduate Theory of Knowledge course and four academic fields to whose epistemological presuppositions it poses challenges. I will work in university libraries throughout southeastern Ohio, first, in order to amplify my knowledge in the grounding texts of psychology, historiography, natural science, and education theory. Second, I will work with my university's IT Department to develop a publicly accessible web database that hyper-links passages between our texts' philosophical arguments and their practical implementation as tacit assumptions within the texts of these other fields. Third, I will use this fellowship to invite local scholars interested in exploring the tacit theories of knowledge utilized by their own fields into the classroom in order that the students be given a tangible example of the interdisciplinary nature of the humanities.
