Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clear, lively, and based on thorough knowledge of the field, O'Brien's book provides an excellent introductory text in epistemology." Christopher Hookway, University of Sheffield "You would have bet against anyone being able to present a concise, rigorous, thoroughly enjoyable introduction not just to all the central areas of epistemology but also to such difficult topics as Wilfrid Sellars' Myth of the Given, Wittgenstein's private language arguments and John McDowell's theory of experience. You would have lost. Dan O'Brien's text is just excellent. The author is an ideal guide through the maze of views that constitutes modern theory of knowledge." Laurence Goldstein, University of Kent

I like the book because it simplifies an area that has been written about in very complex ways. It is a good book to have in your collection for TOK.
