Carefully-calibrated and judiciously-curated, Contemporary Epistemology is a new upper-level anthology which brings together some of the most significant contemporary writing on the theory of knowledge centered around the general theme of the ethics of belief. Sections probe questions such as whether there are norms on belief, how norms on belief relate to norms on action, and how we should understand the nature of epistemic value and normativity. Designed to sit alongside our highly-successful introductory anthology of canonical readings Epistemology: An Anthology, Second Edition--and editedby the same distinguished editorial team--the collection draws from a large, diverse, and evolving literature for a concise and well-balanced selection of readings.

Striking an excellent representational balance between scholarship that has influenced modern epistemology in recent years and the contributions of emerging thought leaders, Jeremy Fantl, Matthew McGrath, and Ernest Sosa have selected 17 readings that represent a broad and vital part of contemporary epistemology. Organized into seven thoughtful and distinct sections which include virtue epistemology, practical reasons for belief, permissivism about belief, epistemic dysfunctions, among others, readings are further contextualized by editorial material meant to help readers engage with the arguments themselves.

* Upper level companion anthology to our best-selling Epistemology: An Anthology, Second Edition
* Edited by a distinguished editorial team, including Ernie Sosa, one of the most influential contemporary epistemologists
* Includes many of the most important contributions made in recent decades by leading authors in the field
* Offer 17 contemporary readings including articles by women philosophers and from new, upcoming voices in the field
* Strikes an excellent balance between coverage of core foundational topics and cutting edge methodologies

An essential collection for students and philosophers concerned with recent developments in the theory of knowledge, Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology is a strong contemporary resource for students, instructors, and active scholars in epistemology.
