Review:

'No less than one would expect from a first-rate epistemologist who is also a master expositor: lucid, comprehensive, well-structured, and excellently informed both by the tradition and by recent developments. A superb introduction.' - Ernest Sosa, Brown University; 'A state-of-the-art introduction to epistemology by one of the leading figures in the field.' - William Alston, Syracuse University; 'Impressively up-to-date.' N - Dr T.J. Diffey, University of Sussex; 'An excellent book. It is comprehensive in scope and very systematically organised. Its most impressive quality is the balance it achieves between argumentative complexity and simplicity of exposition.' - Philosophical Books; 'Good introduction to how we know what we know.' - New Scientist; 'Easily among the best and most comprehensive introductions to epistemology.' - Noah Lemos, De Pauw University; 'This is a massively impressive book, introducing the reader to virtually all the main areas of epistemology. Robert Audi's text is lucid and highly readable, while not shirking the considerable complexities of his subject matter.' - Elizabeth Fricker, Oxford University; 'Audi's introduction is at once philosophically insightful and masterfully written - even more so in its new edition. Guaranteed to fascinate the beginner while retaining its exalted status with the experts.' - Claudio de Almeida
