    Anthony Clifford Grayling CBE FRSA FRSL (/ ˈ ɡ r eɪ l ɪ ŋ /; born 3 April ), commonly known as A. C. Grayling, is a British philosopher and was born in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) and spent most of his childhood there and in Malawi. In he founded and became the first Master of New College of the Humanities, an independent undergraduate college in Born: Anthony Clifford Grayling, 3 April . This thesis is, contra Rorty, very much an epistemological thesis, that is, a thesis about the justification of what we ought to believe. And it says that justification can not run all the way down, that it is grounded, unavoidably, in propositions (and practices) that we accept because they work, and not for any other reason. But nothing in human experience or history gives us any reason Author: Mrsimple.
