What is this thing called Knowledge? [2nd Edition]
What is Knowledge? Where does it come from? Can we know anything at all? This lucid and engaging introduction grapples with these central questions in the theory of knowledge, offering a clear, non-partisan view of the main themes of epistemology including recent developments such as virtue epistemology and contextualism.
Duncan Pritchard discusses traditional issues and contemporary ideas in thirteen easily digestible sections, including:
• the value of knowledge
• the structure of knowledge
• virtues and faculties
• testimony and memory
