Epistemology (PHIL*3190)

Code and section: PHIL*3190*01

Term: Fall 2019

Instructor: Mark McCullagh


Epistemology is a very lively area of contemporary philosophy, centering both on new solutions to longstanding problems (e.g. scepticism about knowledge) and on new problems (e.g. probabilistic reasoning, psychological biases in reasoning). We will read an excellent textbook, Epistemology by Alvin Goldman and Matthew McGrath, as well as some current influential articles. Students will write several short essays responding to the readings.
