this is a weird book. if you want to spend time questioning how and if people know anything at all get this book. but i wouldn't waste more of my time on philosophy in this category, it's just to crazy.
This large collection of essays is a very thorough examination of the contemporary views on knowledge held by professional philosophers. My purpose in purchasing this was to get a better idea of what problems epistemologists are grappling with in today's philosophy programs. In this respect, the book is all I could ask for. Most of the major positions on knowledge are presented through the important essays of their leading advocates.
Bottom line: If you are looking to quickly understand the lay-of-the-land in the debate about knowledge, this book is recommended.
