"This book focuses on what are called theoretical reasons. The topic of interest resides both in practical philosophy, where the importance of the ability to give reasons for action has long been recognized, and in several specific areas of epistemology, where reasons play important roles in regard to questions of justification, warrant, and epistemic entitlement.... Recommended.... Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty." --N.D. Smith, Lewis and Clark College, Choice
This collection of essays addresses foundational questions about reasons for belief and uses new research to explore traditional epistemological concerns such as knowledge, justification and perceptually acquired beliefs. It will be of interest to philosophers working on epistemology, theoretical reason, rationality, perception and ethics.
