epistemological

epistemological
a) Of or pertaining to epistemology or theory of knowledge, as a field of study.

The epistemological position of Ritschl, in our authors exposition of it, is little more than idealistic rationalism.

b) Of or pertaining to knowing or cognizing, as a mental activity.

My conclusion dovetails with Fasolds conclusion, which is based on a quite different, more epistemological kind of argument.
