With a core focus on the issues surrounding the ethics of belief--questions about what we should, ought, must, and may believe, and how we may apply to our beliefs those same norms by which we judge our actions--Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology is a collection of many of the most influential and important recent publications in the study of epistemology. This volume is an ideal complement to Epistemology: An Anthology, second edition (2008), an earlier text by this distinguished editorial team, which aims to provide students with a foundation in the classic texts of epistemological theory.

Now, this editorial team has turned their attention to the present and future of epistemological study. Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology represents both those texts which have been influential on modern epistemology in recent years and those texts which have only just begun to steer trends in the field. Designed to act as the core resource for courses focused on modern epistemology and the ethics of belief, Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology guides students through the relationship between action and the ethics of action and belief and justified belief.
