- DescriptionEpistemology has long mesmerized its practitioners with numerous puzzles. What can we kw, and how can we kw it? In Epistemology: A Contemporary Introduction, Alvin Goldman, one of the most ted contemporary epistemologists, and Matthew McGrath, kwn for his work on a wide range of topics in the field, have joined forces to delve into these puzzles. Featuring a clear and engaging writing style and intriguing examples, Epistemology surveys both traditional and emerging topics in depth, acquainting students t only with the history of the field but also its new developments and directions. The first half of the book examines core questions about the nature and structure of justification and kwledge, skepticism, and the Gettier problem, paying careful attention to reliabilism, evidentialism, contextualism, pragmatic encroachment, kwledge-first epistemology, and dogmatism about perceptual justification. The second half provides lively excursions into such new topics as the relevance of cognitive science to epistemology, the prospects for experimental philosophy, and the evidential status of intuitions. The authors open coverage of each topic with an introduction for beginners and then move on to analyses suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
