Index.

“This book will interest those who teach undergraduate or graduate epistemology, like the idea of using a single-author text, but are unsatisfied with the current options.” (Philosophy In Review)

“This book is an accessible introduction from the perspective of a leading epistemologist. It efficiently surveys and appraises recent work in epistemology. Principal positions are fairly presented. The criticism is crisp. Fumerton’s position has considerable force, as this book brings out.” (Review of Metaphysics)
