In 1942 G.E. Moore first wrote about the curious sort of 'nonsense' exhibited by the statement 'it is raining but I do not believe it'. What Moore discovered was a species of blindspots: consistent propositions that cannot be rationally accepted by certain individuals even though they might be true. In this book, Professor Sorenson aims to provide a unified solution to a large family of philosophical puzzles and paradoxes through a study of blindspots . He devotes special attention to revealing their role in 'slippery slope' reasoning.

'the book is challenging and extremely interesting. It will, I am certain, provike a good deal of exciting philosophical discussion.'Times Literary Supplement 'Blindspots is full of stimulating discussions of innumerable philosophically interesting puzzles and problems ... It shows a lively sense of humour ... and reveals a knack for the provocative' Lloyd Humberstone, Monash University, Australasian Journal of Philosophy
