collection of important essays that provides a useful introduction to a variety of key debates in contemporary epistemology . . . This is an important book for advanced undergraduate students as well as faculty in philosophy. -- Robert P. Amico, Bonaventure University The second edition of Empirical Knowledge is certainly one of the best available anthologies in epistemology. Original, influential, and uniformly excellent contributions, representing importantly different perspectives. -- Richard Fumerton, University of Iowa . . . first-rate contribution to epistemology and an indispensable item for anybody who would teach a first-rate course in epistemology. I cannot commend it enough. -- Robert Almeder, Georgia State University The 2nd edition of Moser's Empirical Knowledge incorporates significant improvements to what was already an excellent anthology. In addition to an expanded introduction, Moser has added new selections on justification and knowledge and Gettier problem, and the volume now includes important recent papers on skepticism and on naturalized epistomology...unquestionably the finest anthology on topics in epistemology now available, one useful for undergraduate and graduate courses, and one any philosopher interested in contemporary epistemology would want to own. -- John Heil, Davidson College
