This is an auction for THE PROBLEM OF KNOWLEDGE by A J Ayer.

"Alfred Jules Ayer (1910-1989) was a British philosopher who was a founder of Logical Positivism, who was a professor of logic at the University of Oxford. He wrote many books, such as Language, Truth and Logic,The Foundations Of Empirical Knowledge,Probability and Evidence, etc. He wrote in the Preface to this book, “In this book I begin by taking the question of what is meant by knowledge as an example of a philosophical enquiry. Having maintained that to say one knows a fact is to claim the right to be sure of it. I show how such claims may be disputed on philosophical grounds… The attempt to meet these objections supplies the main subject-matter for what is called the theory of knowledge; and different philosophical standpoints are characterized by the acceptance of denial of different stages in the sceptic’s argument… I also make some observations about philosophical method, the dimensions of time, causality, and personal identity.”
