Readership: Scholars and advanced students of epistemology.
Edited by Trent Dougherty, Baylor University, Texas
Trent Dougherty graduated from the University of Rochester, where he wrote a dissertation arguing against the notion that whether one knows depends on one's practical interests. He is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Baylor University, where he regularly teaches graduate seminars in epistemology, philosophy of language, and philosophy of religion. When not writing philosophy, he is usually riding a bike, often with his wife or one of his children.
"a significant contribution to a number of ongoing discussions in contemporary epistemology. It will be useful for both graduate students and researchers in epistemology, and a valuable addition to library collections in epistemology." - Joseph Shieber, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"a timely and noteworthy contribution to epistemology ... Epistemologists of any creed will unquestionably glean much insight from this collection." - Lauren Leydon-Hardy, Analysis
