Part of the Palgrave Philosophy Today book series (PPT)


In keeping with the aims of the series to which this book belongs, I have tried to write a text on contemporary epistemology which presents a coherent narrative arc through some of the key issues in this area. As such, I haven’t aimed at offering a broad comprehensive sweep of all the issues (which means that I’ve left out some significant contemporary debates), and I’ve completely ignored the history of the subject (important though it is). There is a place for gargantuan texts which have these grander designs, but there is also a place for more concise works that cover a fundamental cross-section of pivotal contemporary issues in an area and nothing more. This book falls clearly into the latter category.
