The Theory of Knowledge: Classic and Contemporary Readings, 3rd Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pojman's THE THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE: CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY READINGS is nothing less than the most up-to-date and comprehensive reader in knowledge theory on the market. Containing 63 readings, the book is now organized into eleven parts that outline the subjects' central to contemporary epistemology. Opposing positions are set forth for all issues and a brief synopsis introduces each reading.

Book News Annotation:

An anthology of 64 philosophical articles on epistemology, ranging broadly in perspective, examines theories and justifications of knowledge (including a section on the philosophy of science). Pojman (philosophy, U.S. Military Academy) has arranged the articles such that they speak to each other in debate and dialogue, organizing the essays into sections on skepticism, perception, the analysis of knowledge, foundationalism and coherentism, externalism and internalism, a priori knowledge, the justification of induction, scientific method, ethics of belief, and major challenges to contemporary epistemology.
