Theory of Knowledge I (PHIL*3190)

Term: Fall 2013


This course is an advanced survey of the central issues in contemporary epistemology. In it we will look at the standard analysis of knowledge as justified true belief, and we will consider skeptical and other challenges to this traditional view. We will look at the variety of theories of justification and knowledge including foundationalism, coherentis and reliablism. Throughout our discussions we will try to answer some basic questions concerning human knowledge, such as: What is knowledge and how is it different from mere belief? What counts as good evidence for the beliefs that we hold? And what are the sources of knowledge?
