Symptoms of Expertise: Knowledge, Understanding and Other Cognitive Goods

Symptoms of Expertise: Knowledge, Understanding and Other Cognitive Goods In this paper, I want to make two main points.

Abstract

In this paper, I want to make two main points. (I) The first point is methodological: Instead of attempting to give a classical analysis or reductive definition of the term “expertise”, we should attempt an explication and look for what may be called symptoms of expertise. What this comes to will be explained in due course. (II) My second point is substantial: I want to recommend understanding as an important symptom of expertise. In order to give this suggestion content, I begin to develop an account of understanding. Finally, I will draw attention to some consequences of this approach.
