Nature, definition, and possibility of knowledge.
Epistemology concerns philosophical questions about knowledge. We will study many of the most important of these questions and the most important answers that have been offered to them. We will mainly focus on contemporary epistemology, but we will occasionally look at historical issues as well. Along the way, we will serve the broader goal of learning and practicing distinctly philosophical skills, including reading critically, thinking carefully, and writing clearly. Previous coursework in philosophy recommended.
