From the Back Cover:

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 definition and structure of knowledge, the nature 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 Epistemic Closure and Testimony, Memory, and Perception; the editors have updated many of the sections from the first edition by adding new selections on the value of knowledge, sensitive invariantism, and epistemic relativism among other topics.

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.
