Table of contents
-Baron Reed, Northwestern University
"This is a state-of-the-art collection by some of the leading epistemologists in the world today. The quality of the essays is exceptionally high and it is hard to think of a better volume of this kind on the market at present. Indispensable."
-Quassim Cassam, University of Warwick
"The Routledge Companion to Epistemology has the virtues of a classic reference work. It is a comprehensive presentation of the state of contemporary philosophy about knowledge and related matters. Many of the entries are written by the most influential philosophers on their topics. Non-epistemologists can use the work to find out what has been going on in almost any area of epistemology. Epistemologists can benefit from authoritative descriptions of work in areas beyond their expertise."
-Earl Conee, University of Rochester
"With almost 80 entries by leading experts, no practicing or aspiring epistemologist should be without a copy by his or her side. No library should go without, and everyone working in contemporary philosophy would benefit from having this reference ready to hand. Bernecker and Pritchard have stitched together a truly outstanding collection of concise and informative essays covering the whole of contemporary epistemology."
-Peter Graham, University of California, Riverside
"As a series, the 'Routledge Philosophy Companions' has met with near universal acclaim. This expansive volume not only continues the trend but quite possibly sets a new standard. Combining encyclopedic coverage with the scholarly acumen of established leaders in the field, this is an indispensable resource for scholars, students, and libraries...Indeed, this is a definitive resource that will continue to prove its value for a long time to come. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates and above." -CHOICE
