Overview

Known for distinguished work in the fields of metaphysics and philosophy of religion, Alvin Plantinga ventures further into epistemology in this book and its companion volume, Warrant and Proper Function.

This first volume serves as a good introduction to the central issues in contemporary epistemology.
