Human Knowledge: Foundations and Limits

Human Knowledge: Foundations and Limits is a memeware reference hypertext written from a materialist and futurist perspective by Brian Holtz. It claims to summarize the foundations and limits of what human civilization has learned, identifying for each subdivision of human knowledge its fundamental concepts, principles, mysteries, and misunderstandings. It uses typographic conventions to distinguish between what it considers uncontentious facts and potentially contentious assertions sympathetic to ontological materialism, epistemological empiricism and positivism, mental functionalism, theological atheism, axiological extropianism, political libertarianism, economic capitalism, constitutional federalism, and technological optimism. The text is currently a draft, with completed sections on philosophy, logic, physics, economics, and futurology.
