In Epistemology, Laurence Bonjour introduces the serious philosophy student to the history and concepts of epistemology, while simultaneously challenging them to take an active part in its ongoing debates. The text reflects BonJour's conviction that the place to start any discussion of the theories of knowledge is with the classical problems, beginning with and centered around Descartes. Only after the groundwork for understanding epistemology is laid does BonJour move on to the more contemporary revolutions against the classical approach.

A versatile text that can be used in introductory-level epistemology courses, it can also be used by an upper-level epistemology class when supplemented by appropriate readings. This book is not, however, a simple reader of the different theories of knowledge. Epistemology prods students to think independently about the various epistemological approaches presented in the text, and form their own conclusions, thus becoming active participants in the ongoing debate.

About the Author:

Laurence BonJour is professor of philosophy at the University of Washington in Seattle. He is author of numerous articles and author or editor of several books, including Philosophical Problems: An Annotated Anthology (co-edited, Pearson Longman), Epistemic Justification: Internalism vs. Externalism, Foundations vs. Virtues (co-authored, Oxford University Press), In Defense of Pure Reason (Cambridge University Press), and The Structure of Empirical Knowledge (Harvard University Press).

Review:

Epistemology is destined to become a classic. BonJour gives the reader a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental issues of epistemology. In the great tradition of philosophers like Russell and Ayer, BonJour has written a book that will be accessible and compelling to readers of all backgrounds. (Fumerton, Richard)

Laurence BonJour's fine new textbook covers a wide range of topics in contemporary epistemology, using key historical sources to set up the issues. BonJour presents the issues and arguments in an accessible and non-technical manner without sacrificing necessary details. This is an excellent introduction to epistemology. (Feldman, Richard)

Laurence BonJour's Epistemology is a rich and thorough, historically informed introduction to the traditional core questions of epistemology. Authored by a foremost exponent of the traditional core answers, at the top of his form, it is a lucid defense of internalist, Cartesian foundationalism, one that should be accessible to undergraduates with no background in philosophy. (Sosa, Ernest)
