Abstract: Epistemology is the branch of philosophy that studies the nature of knowledge, its presuppositions and foundations, and its extent and validity. It is as relevant to performing arts medicine as it is to any other area of human inquiry, and the article by Wu in this issue is a new brick in the foundation of what we know about risk factors for musculoskeletal injuries in musicians. In this editorial I will attempt to put Dr. Wu¿s systematic review of the literature on this subject in context. Readers should be aware that I was a coauthor of one of the articles reviewed by Wu and the author of others that apparently did not ¿make the cut.¿
