In this work, eleven pairs of newly commissioned essays face off on opposite sides of fundamental problems in current theories of knowledge. This work brings together fresh debates on eleven of the most controversial issues in epistemology. Questions addressed include: Is knowledge contextual? Can skepticism be refuted? Can beliefs be justified through coherence alone? And, is justified belief responsible belief? Lively debate format sharply defines the issues, and paves the way for further discussion. This work will serve as an accessible introduction to the major topics in contemporary epistemology, whilst also capturing the imagination of professional philosophers.
