9780091729318: Contemporary Theories of Knowledge

This new edition of the classic Contemporary Theories of Knowledge has been significantly updated to include analyses of the recent literature in epistemology. Rather than merely making slight amendments to the first edition, Pollock and Cruz have undertaken a groundbreaking assessment of twentiethcentury epistemology. This book is both an advanced textbook offering traditional discussions of foundationalism, coherentism, and reliabilism and a detailed treatise on the authors' own distinctive view, direct realism.

"This is a stimulating book which everyone interested in the subject should read." Philosophy and Phenomenological Research A thorough and accurate survey of the present state of the subject, [Pollock's] book is also an original contribution of first importance. I know of no better introduction to contemporary theories of knowledge. -- Roderick M. Chisholm, Brown University A fine introduction to the field and to Pollock's own thought. -- Ernest Sosa, Brown University An excellent recent survey of the present-day epistemologies of secular philosophy... We can learn much ... from the thoroughness and rigor of Pollock's argument." Westminster Theological Journal The book can be read with great profit not only by advanced philosophy students, but by all professional philosophers. The British Journal For The Philosophy Of Science
