On The Problem of Knowing

What follows, was written in 1972.  The problem has only intensified since that time, as has the number of individuals inculcated.

Those who have been raised in the last couple of decades stand right here in the area of epistemology.  The really great problem is not, for example, just drugs or amorality.  The problem is knowing.  This is a generation of anti-philosophy people caught in an uncertainty of knowing.
