The simplest questions are never so simple. "What is knowledge?" has been pondered for millennia-and continues to engage the most brilliant philosophical minds. With all central topics in the field included-skepticism, the Pyrrhonian problematic, the structure of epistemic justification, and many more-Epistemology: An Anthology continues to represent the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of canonical readings in the theory of knowledge. In addition to including all-new sections on Testimony, Memory, and Perception; and the Value of Knowledge, the editors have updated the selections on the Structure of Knowledge and Justification, the Non-Epistemic in Epistemology, and the Nature of the Epistemic from the first edition. Striking an excellent balance between traditional theories and cutting edge contemporary methodologies, Epistemology: An Anthology is an essential compendium for all philosophers concerned with the latest developments in the theory of knowledge.
