Overview

Epistemology: New Essays

Epistemology: New Essays offers a cutting-edge overview of the current state of the field. It presents twelve new essays from several of the philosophers who have most influenced the course of debates in recent years. The selections cover a wide range of topics including epistemic justification, solipsism, skepticism, and modal, moral, naturalistic, and probabilistic epistemology. In addition, the philosophers who pioneered such approaches as reliabilism, evidentialism, infinitism, and virtue epistemology further develop these perspectives in this volume.
