Course DescriptionDo we know anything? If so, what do we know, and how do we know it? What is the difference between knowledge and mere belief or opinion? How can we tell if our beliefs are justified? What makes some beliefs true, and others false? Epistemology - the study of knowledge - is the branch of philosophy concerned with such questions. This course explores these issues by examining some important contributions to the field, both historical and contemporary.
