For anyone looking to better understand the topics at the centre of contemporary epistemology, The Bloomsbury Companion to Epistemology presents a valuable guide.

This up-to-date Companion covers all the fundamental questions asked by epidemiologists today - areas that have continued to attract interest historically as well as topics that have emerged more recently as active areas of research. Fifteen specially-commissioned essays from a respected team of experts reveal where important work continues to be done in the area and the new directions the field is taking, such as:
• Foundationalism by Daniel Howard-Snyder
• Coherentism by Jonathan Kvanvig
• Proper Functionalism by Kenneth Boyce and Alvin Plantinga
• Evidentialism by Richard Feldman and Andrew Cullison
• Experimental Epistemology by James R. Beebe

Clearly written and featuring a detailed list of resources, glossary and a fully annotated bibliography, The Bloomsbury Companion to Epistemology introduces some of the most exciting topics in contemporary analytic philosophy.


“Like the Bloomsbury Companion to Metaphysics , this volume would be profitably read cover to cover … [A] useful addition to anyone’s library and would contribute well to one’s understanding of philosophy, epistemology, and the pursuit of an informed methodology for any field involving knowledge (which is, of course, every field).” ― Exegetical Tools

“This volume can be wholeheartedly recommended to those with research interests in contemporary epistemology.” ― CHOICE
