PHIL 335 - Contemporary Epistemology (M&E)

Examines contemporary theories of how knowledge claims are justified, and also how these theories respond to skeptical challenges. This involves detailing fundamental strategies of epistemic justification such as foundationalism, coherentism, and naturalism. Students also inquire into what makes a body of beliefs a structure of knowledge and consider how the interpretation of rationality is related to these questions of justification.
