From the Back Cover:

Building on the reputation of the first edition, this fully revised and updated volume expands the original content by including fourteen newly commissioned essays, presenting perspectives on differing sides of the most vibrant current debates in epistemology: Is knowledge contextual? Can skepticism be refuted? Can beliefs be justified through coherence alone? The expanded content evinces the central truth of philosophy as a discipline: that progress comes only through argumentation, dialectic, and debate.

In common with the other volumes in the Contemporary Debates in Philosophy series, this new edition combines expert editing and judiciously commissioned material, adopting the series format which pairs up two essays espousing opposing views on a particular topic or theme in epistemology. The head-to-head chapters offer forceful advocacy of some of today’s most compelling philosophical stances as well as a brilliant opportunity for philosophy students to weigh the arguments and engage in comparative analysis of epistemological concepts that are constantly changing and developing.
