The Power of Example
Tore Nordenstam
All understanding is example-based. Examples are not just appendages of understanding, illustrations or pedagogical devices, they are the cornerstones of understanding. These are some of the most important ideas in this book. The author demonstrates the fundamental role that examples play in concept ­formation and cultural understanding by using examples from art, literature, ethics and law.

However, in traditional epistemology and philosophy of science, examples play a minor role. The Western philosophical tradition focuses on the general. The consequences of this for the humanities is the theme of the chapters ‘In the Shadow of the Eternal’, ‘In the Light of History’, ‘The Humanities as Science’ and ‘Explanation and Understanding in the Humanities’.
The fundamental changes that the concept of science has undergone in the course of its long career is also the background for an essay on F.W. Taylor’s influential ideas on Scientific Management.

The book ends with a critique of ethical relativism and moral provincialism and a discussion of ways of reaching cross-cultural agreement in the field of ethics.
