Issues in Emunah II
This is a clarification of what I'd meant by my views on epistemology, knowledge acquisition, etc., being "tainted". Everyone's perspectives on everything are affected to some degree by a multitude of variables - epistemology and doxastic practices are generally taken for granted by everyone, and not subjected to the same criticism and sellf-review as other perspectives. We generally don't give a second thought to Media,
advertising, etc, and how it affects what we believe or how we believe.
I was only laying out that dimension of 'tainting', regarding something so
foundational for other beliefs/assumptions, that it generally escapes suspicion of being affected by our mental "ecosystem".
