An Introduction to Epistemology

Year of entry




Epistemology, 'the science of knowledge', investigates what knowledge is and whether we have any. These lectures discuss how knowledge differs from mere opinion and explore connections with belief, truth and justification. How should we answer sceptics who doubt that we know there is an external world outside our own minds?
