    Book Description:

    Contemporary Debates in Epistemology presents pairs of newly commissioned essays facing off on opposite sides of fundamental problems in current theories of knowledge. The essays focus on three core areas of epistemology: skepticism, the foundations of knowledge, and justification. Topics in debate include epistemic closure, contextualism, inference to the best explanation, a priori knowledge, regress problems, coherence theories, perception and conceptual content, internalism and externalism, epistemic goals, and epistemic justification as responsibility. Written in an accessible manner, but also including novel and rigorous arguments, the essays will be of interest to anyone thinking about these philosophically central issues.

    From the Back Cover:

    Contemporary Debates in Epistemology features original essays on some of the most hotly debated issues in the field. Is knowledge contextual? Can skepticism be refuted? Can beliefs be justified through coherence alone? Is justified belief responsible belief?
