Description:

Now updated to incorporate expanded selections from modern philosophers and a more thorough, organized treatment of contemporary epistemology, this collection of reading deftly blends the foremost classical sources with important contemporary philosophical thinkers to present a far reaching examination of the theory of knowledge. Formative voices of epistemology from ancient Greek philosophy, medieval philosophy, classical modern philosophy, pragmatism, and contemporary analytic philosophy are amply represented.
