  • Refurbishing Epistemologyby Dominique Kuenzle

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 114.99

    Even though important developments within 20th and 21st century philosophy have widened the scope of epistemology, this has not yet resulted in a systematic meta-epistemological debate about epistemology’s aims, methods, and criteria of success. Ideas such as the methodology of reflective equilibrium, the proposal to "naturalize" epistemology, constructivist... more...

  • Reflections on the Liarby Bradley Armour-Garb

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 84.99

  • Responsibility: The Epistemic Conditionby Philip Robichaud; Jan Willem Wieland

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 59.99

    Sometimes ignorance excuses, sometimes it does not. Whether ignorance can be used as an excuse is controversial. Can ancient slaveholders be excused for owning slaves because they did not know that slavery is wrong? Sixteen new essays explore various ways of defining the line between ignorance that excuses and ignorance that does not. more...

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 59.99

    Jonathan Ichikawa synthesizes two prominent ideas in epistemology: contextualism about knowledge ascriptions, and the 'knowledge first' emphasis on the theoretical primacy of knowledge. He argues that in thinking clearly about knowledge, epistemologists must also think about the dynamic aspects of the words we use to talk about knowledge. more...

  • The Natural Problem of Consciousnessby Pietro Snider

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 114.99

    The “Natural Problem of Consciousness” is the problem of understanding why there are presently conscious beings at all. Given a non-reductive naturalist framework taking consciousness as an ontologically subjective biological phenomenon, how can we rationally explain the fact that the actual world has turned out to be one where there are presently... more...
