Editorial Reviews


"Far-ranging and strikingly original....Craig has written one of the most inspired works of epistemology in several decades, a compact masterpiece sketching a new way to do epistemology and brimming with illuminating concrete proposals. The book is powerfully, densely argued, and it is exquisitely written. Any future work in epistemology must reckon with this unique book."--Mind

"Interesting and frequentlly offers a new perspective on old problems."--Philosophical Review

Format: Paperback
This book managed to solve two years of painful wrangling with the Oxford epistemology paper in the day or so it took to read it. Nozick, Goldman et al are all deftly dealt with and dismissed. The problems of knowledge cannot be "solved", but Craig presents a new, lucid way of approaching them that demonstrates the problems of traditional analytic approaches to philosophy and how they have tried (and failed) to handle the problems raied by Edmund Gettier.
