About this book

Duncan Pritchard offers students not only a new exploration of topics central to current epistemological debate, but also a new way of doing epistemology. This advanced textbook covers such key topics as virtue epistemology, anti-luck epistemology, epistemological disjunctivism and attributer contextualism.

About the authors

Duncan Pritchard is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, UK. His research is primarily in epistemology, and he has published widely in this area, including two books, Epistemic Luck (2005) and What is This Thing Called Knowledge (2006).

Reviews

'This new book by Duncan Pritchard is an excellent introduction to the theory of knowledge, as well as a useful resource for understanding Pritchard's own important view. Pritchard's treatment of the subject area is masterful, achieving a combination of clarity and efficiency that is rarely seen in philosophy.'

- John Greco, Saint Louis University, USA.

'An excellent overview of contemporary epistemology from the perspective of an established, prolific contributor to the field. It is informative, objective, and well argued, but also readable and engaging.'

- Ernest Sosa, Rutgers University, USA.
