Knowledge and Reality Knowledge and Reality
Syed Abdul Sayeed

The book critically examines the reductionist tendencies prevalent in contemporary thought and offers an alternative framework. It draws attention to the two dominant fallacies involved in reductionism: the ‘fallacies of fragments of knowledge’. The first is the fallacy of assuming that knowledge of reality is nothing but the knowledge of the fragments that constitute reality, and the second is the fallacy of assuming that the fragmentary knowledge derived from different specialized disciplines, if put together, will somehow yield an integrated picture of reality.
