Summary

For courses in Epistemology.

This accessible introduction to contemporary epistemology goes beyond a survey of the major current views. Throughout, the author provides a fair and balanced blending of the standard positions on epistemology with his own carefully reasoned positions on the major issues. Content is organized around "The Standard View" --the view that we do know most of the things reflective common sense tells us we know. Skepticism is discussed as only one of several objections to the view.

Features

  • A careful, balanced blend of survey AND analysis--Provides clear neutral depictions of major extant theories; but the author offers carefully reasoned explanations when he disagrees with a position under discussion.
  • Organized around "The Standard View" --Rather than around skepticism. Discusses skepticism later in the book, as one of several objections to "The Standard View."
  • Helps keep students focused on key questions in epistemology.
  • Sophisticated yet accessible approach.
  • Makes difficult concepts clear without oversimplifying them.
  • Discussion of relativism and the possibility of rational disagreement.
  • Introduces students to an important topic of dispute in epistemological studies.
