The high school Higher School of Religious Sciences of the University of Navarra (ISCR) has published Teoría del knowledge . The volume, written by professors Juan Fernando Sellés and Francisco Gallardo, is the twenty-sixth book in the ISCR Manuals collection published by EUNSA.

As the authors of guide point out, "the theory of knowledge is the philosophical discipline that studies what human knowledge is like and what its levels are. The knowledge occurs on different, organised and hierarchical levels: seeing a tree is not the same as remembering or imagining it; the cognitive act that understands it, values it or distinguishes it from other realities is also different. They are different acts, more or less intense and elevated".

The publication studies the four levels of human knowledge: the sensible, the rational, the intellectual and staff. It also studies truth and the rectification of the most common errors against it, as well as the three basic errors against its knowledge : relativism, scepticism and subjectivism.

The book also summarises the three noetic proposals that have most influenced the history of Philosophy: nominalism, idealism and realism. In addition, this publication finally examines the different knowledge and sciences, which also respond in an orderly fashion to the different levels of the human knowledge .

Juan Fernando Sellés is Senior Associate Professor of Philosophical Anthropology at the University of Navarra. Francisco Gallardo is director of programs of study of the high school Superior of Religious Sciences of this same University.
