Epistemology is the branch of philosophy that examines questions about knowledge, justification, belief and related concepts. This course addresses questions about how we should understand knowledge and justification as well as what, if anything, it is possible for us to know, with particular emphasis on the challenge posed by philosophical scepticism. Finally, this course examines philosophical issues concerning perceptual knowledge, a priori knowledge, and coherentist and foundationalist approaches to justification.
