Since its first publication, A Companion to Epistemology has established itself as the leading single-volume epistemology reference work in the field. This extended and revised edition brings the companion up to date. Part I, consisting of newly commissioned review essays, focuses on the major topics that have an abiding centrality for the field, including a priori justification, Bayesian epistemology, closure, contextualism, epistemic virtue, internalism vs. externalism, foundationalism vs. coherentism, perception, scepticism, and social epistemology. Part II brings together twenty self-portraits of leading epistemologists who are widely recognized and respected for their contributions to the field, including Fred Dretske, Alvin Goldman, Gilbert Harman, Alvin Plantinga, John Pollock, Timothy Williamson, and Linda Zagzebski. The content of the first edition is retained in Part III: Epistemology from A–Z. This section of nearly 300 entries has been extensively revised, with many new and rewritten entries reflecting recent developments in the field. Written by leading experts, the entries in this comprehensive volume combine to form a complete and up-to-date reference guide for students and professionals alike.
"This excellent new edition of A Companion to Epistemology offers a thoroughly comprehensive, authoritative and cutting-edge overview of the field. It will, I'm sure, be indispensable to those working in this area for many years to come." —Duncan Pritchard, University of Edinburgh “A comprehensive guide to epistemology. The new sections and enlargements make the Companion unique among guides to epistemology. I recommend it highly to students as well as seasoned epistemologists.” —Matthew McGrath, University of Missouri
