'Morton's highly readable third edition treats a notoriously difficult topic with pizzazz. Colorful illustrations encourage readers to think deeply about complex issues, not just memorize what philosophers have said about them. One could hardly hope for a better guide through the rough terrain of epistemology.' Martin Montminy, University of Ottawa
'This new edition of Adam Morton's well–established introduction to epistemology will be extremely helpful to students and teachers. The book is particularly suited for those coming to the area for the first time. It is clear without being simplistic, engaging without being patronizing, and introductory without being bland. This new edition brings the discussion up to date, while the new chapter on externalism and epistemic virtues explores the issues very well. Once again, Morton's guidance will be invaluable to many.' Robert Stern, University of Sheffield
From the Back Cover
The third edition of this highly acclaimed text is ideal for introductory courses in epistemology. Assuming little or no philosophical knowledge, it guides beginning students through the landmarks in epistemology, covering historically important topics as well as current issues and debates.
This edition includes an entirelynew chapter on externalism and epistemic virtues, and extensive revisions to other chapters. The suggestions for further reading, including electronic resources, have also been updated. It engagingly covers mainstream topics such as beliefs and perception, induction and probability, and knowledge of minds, as well as newer topics such as naturalistic epistemology, Bayesian epistemology, externalism, and moral knowledge.
At the end of each chapter are reading questions that test students' understanding of the presented information and thinking questions that challenge students and invite them into deeper reflection.
