    Random House 2010; US$ 15.98

    Whatever benefits and rewards it may sometimes be possible to attain by bullshitting, by dissembling, or by sheer mendacity, societies cannot afford to tolerate anyone or anything that fosters a slovenly indifference to the distinction between true and false.

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 84.99

    Recent epistemology has reflected a growing interest in issues about the value of knowledge and the values informing epistemic appraisal.

Epistemic Value is a collection of... more...

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 34.99

    Out of the ferment of recent debates about the intellectual virtues, Roberts and Wood have developed an approach they call 'regulative epistemology'.
