For those working in Epistemology dizzying questions such as the following arise: * When are beliefs rational, or justified? * How should we update our beliefs in the light of new evidence? * Is it possible to gain knowledge, or justification? * How do we know what we know, and why do we care about whether-and what-others know? * How can the exploration of pre-Socratic philosophical questions about knowledge assist with the design of twenty-first-century computer interfaces? Addressing the need for an authoritative and comprehensive reference work to enable users to answer these and other questions, and to make sense of-and to navigate around-an ever more complex corpus of scholarly literature, Epistemology is a new title in Routledge's acclaimed Critical Concepts in Philosophy series. Edited by Ram Neta, it is a four-volume collection which brings together foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in a unique one-stop 'mini library'.
Supplemented with a full index, and including an introduction to each volume, newly written by the editor, which places the assembled materials in their historical and intellectual context, Epistemology is destined to be valued by scholars and students as a vital research resource.
