'No less than one would expect from a first-rate epistemologist who is also a master expositor: lucid, comprehensive, well-structured, and excellently informed both by the tradition and by recent developments. A superb introduction.' - Ernest Sosa, Brown University; 'A state-of-the-art introduction to epistemology by one of the leading figures in the field.' - William Alston, Syracuse University; 'Impressively up-to-date.' N - Dr T.J. Diffey, University of Sussex; 'An excellent book. It is comprehensive in scope and very systematically organised. Its most impressive quality is the balance it achieves between argumentative complexity and simplicity of exposition.' - Philosophical Books; 'Good introduction to how we know what we know.' - New Scientist; 'Easily among the best and most comprehensive introductions to epistemology.' - Noah Lemos, De Pauw University; 'This is a massively impressive book, introducing the reader to virtually all the main areas of epistemology. Robert Audi's text is lucid and highly readable, while not shirking the considerable complexities of his subject matter.' - Elizabeth Fricker, Oxford University; 'Audi's introduction is at once philosophically insightful and masterfully written - even more so in its new edition. Guaranteed to fascinate the beginner while retaining its exalted status with the experts.' - Claudio de AlmeidaReseña del editor:
Epistemology, or the theory of knowledge, is concerned with how we know what we do, what justifies us in believing what we do, and what standards of evidence we should use in seeking truths about the world and human experience. This comprehensive book introduces the concepts and theories central for understanding knowledge. It aims to reach students who have already done an introductory philosophy course. The first edition of Epistemology: A Contemporary Introduction was hugely successful and has been widely used by teachers and students in the field. This revised edition builds on the topics covered in the first edition and includes new material on subjects such as virtue epistemology, feminist epistemology and social epistemology. The chapter on moral, scientific and religious knowledge has also been expanded and revised. Robert Audi's style is exceptionally clear and highly accessible for anyone coming to the subject for the first time.
