Epistemology, or the theory of knowledge, is concerned with how we know what wedo, what justifies us in believing what we do, and what standards of evidence weshould use in seeking truths about the world and human experience. This compre-hensive book introduces the concepts and theories central for understandingknowledge. This revised edition builds on the topics covered in the widelyacclaimed first edition and includes new material on subjects such as virtue episte-mology, social epistemology and feminist epistemology. The chapter on moral,scientific and religious knowledge has also been expanded and revised.

This innovative,well-structured series is for students who have already done anintroductory course in philosophy.Each book introduces a core general subjectin contemporary philosophy and offers students an accessible but substantialtransition from introductory to higher-level college work in that subject.Theseries is accessible to non-specialists and each book clearly motivates andexpounds the problems and positions introduced.An orientating chapter brieflyintroduces its topic and reminds readers of any crucial material they need tohave retained from a typical introductory course.Considerable attention isgiven to explaining the central philosophical problems of a subject and the maincompeting solutions and arguments for those solutions.The primary aim is toeducate students in the main problems,positions and arguments of contempo-rary philosophy rather than to convince students of a single position.
