What should I do? What should I think? Traditionally, ethicists tackle the first question, while epistemologists tackle the second. Philosophers have tended to investigate the issue of what to do independently of the issue of what to think, that is, to do ethics independently of epistemology, and vice versa. This collection of new essays by leading philosophers focuses on a central concern of both epistemology and ethics: normativity. Normativity is a matter of what one should or may do or think, what one has reason or justification to do or to think, what it is right or wrong to do or to think, and so on. The volume is innovative in drawing together issues from epistemology and ethics and in exploring neglected connections between epistemic and practical normativity. It represents a burgeoning research programme in which epistemic and practical normativity are seen as two aspects of a single topic, deeply interdependent and raising parallel questions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Most people who claim that epistemology is a normative discipline are concerned with what people ought to or are permitted or are rational or have a reason tobelieve, and what knowledge entails about any of these normative claims. Hunter, in contrast, asks us to consider what someone ought to know or ought to have known. Claims of this kind - and the relative difficulties in understanding them between knowledge-first and other approaches in epistemology - deserve much more attention. I therefore hope that Hunter's chapter and the questions it poses receive the attention that they deserve. * Mark Schroeder, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
