Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent collection of essays. It has a nice balance between traditional and contemporary sources.
–Peter Klein, Rutgers University

A very useful volume- a user-friendly way of exposing students to classic readings plus more recent continuations of those debates.
–Miranda Fricker, Heythrop College, London

Format: Paperback
Huemer's anthology is intended to complement Robert Audi's introduction to the epistemology in the Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy series. And, as one would expect, it is an ideal text to be read in conjunction with Audi's book. Almost all the subjects discussed in that book--the exceptions being moral and religious knowledge--are given corresponding sections in this anthology. Nevertheless, I see no reason why this book needs to be used in conjunction with the other book. It is a perfectly fine selection of readings for a person who wants a picture of some of the main areas of debate in epistemology. For those who may be coming to the book without the background provided by reading Audi's introductory text, Huemer provides a short introduction to the subject matter of each chapter. And it seems he has chosen historical selections that help the reader to understand the nature of the problems being discussed in each of the sections and why someone might think those problems are important ones.
A signal virtue of this book is that it is helpful in introducing both contemporary and historical work in epistemology. Is it somewhat paradoxical that almost half of a volume in a series called Routledge Contemporary Readings in Philosophy should consist of historical papers? Somewhat so, perhaps, but it isn't all that surprising in a philosophy text. For, as any student of philosophy can tell you, the history of philosophy isn't just history; it's also crucial for understanding the nature of the problems with which philosophers are dealing and the possible solutions that can be offered in response to those problems. And this volume is quite good at introducing the history of philosophical thought about the nature, structure, and varieties of human knowledge.

3 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Iam Bloom on March 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is great for an overview of the different issues that are dealt with in the study of knowledge. It takes a great sampling of those philosophers that have made a lot of contributions to the field. My only issue with the text is that it only seems to wet your appetite for the material before they move on to the next topic.
