Overview

"Since its first publication, A Companion to Epistemology has established itself as the leading single-volume epistemology reference work in the field. This extended and revised edition brings the Companion up to date." "Part I, consisting of newly commissioned review essays, focuses on the major topics that have an abiding centrality for the field, including a priori justification, Bayesian epistemology, closure, contextualism, epistemic virtue, internalism vs. externalism, foundationalism vs. coherentism, perception, scepticsm, and social epistemology. Part II brings together twenty self-portraits of leading epistemologists who are widely recognized and respected for their contributions to the field. The content of the first edition is retained in Part III: Epistemology from A-Z. This section of nearly 300 entries has been extensively revised, with many new and rewritten entries reflecting recent developments in the field." Written by leading experts, the entries in this comprehensive volume combine to form a complete and up-to-date reference guide for students and professionals alike.
