Continuum companions to philosophy


Fifteen commissioned essays explore key issues of current concern in the contemporary philosophy of epistemology. Presented by Cullison (philosophy, State U. of New York at Fredonia), the contributions individually examine the topics of: the nature of knowledge, foundationalism, coherentism, infinitism, evidentialism, reliabilism, proper functionalism, skepticism and justification, epistemic relativism, the conceptual approach to a priori knowledge, contextualism and interest-relative invariantism, formal epistemology, experimental epistemology, epistemic value, and the deep rationality theory of wisdom. Also included are a glossary, and guide to research resources, a bibliography, and an index.
