About this product
- DescriptionFrom Plato to Quine, this volume provides a concise collection of the essential, classic readings in theory of kwledge.Epistemology, or the theory of kwledge, is one of the oldest and most central branches of philosophy. Do we kw what we think we kw? What are the sources of kwledge? These are among the perennial questions of philosophy. This volume contains twenty of the most important historical contributions - from the earliest times to Wittgenstein, from China to the USA - to this area of philosophy. Several of the texts address the problem of skepticism, whose challenge to the very possibility of kwledge has been the main inspiration to reflections on kwledge.A substantial introduction by the editor, together with his preamble to each text, helps make this volume an invaluable one for students taking historically informed courses on the theory of kwledge.
