Description

"The Oxford Handbook of Epistemology" is a major reference work on one of the core topics of philosophy - the theory of knowledge. Connecting to virtually every other subfield, epistemology is central to mainstream philosophy. The Handbook contains nineteen previously unpublished chapters on the theory of knowledge, by today's leading figures in the field. These chapters function as a survey of key areas as well as original and interesting scholarship on vital topics currently of great interest. Written accessibly for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional philosophers, the Handbook explains the main ideas and problems of contemporary epistemology while avoiding overly technical detail.show more
