For anyone looking to better understand the topics at the centre of contemporary epistemology, The Bloomsbury Companion to Epistemology presents a valuable guide.

This up-to-date Companion covers all the fundamental questions asked by epidemiologists today - areas that have continued to attract interest historically as well as topics that have emerged more recently as active areas of research. Fifteen specially-commissioned essays from a respected team of experts reveal where important work continues to be done in the area and the new directions the field is taking, such as:
• Foundationalism by Daniel Howard-Snyder
• Coherentism by Jonathan Kvanvig
• Proper Functionalism by Kenneth Boyce and Alvin Plantinga
• Evidentialism by Richard Feldman and Andrew Cullison
• Experimental Epistemology by James R. Beebe

Clearly written and featuring a detailed list of resources, glossary and a fully annotated bibliography, The Bloomsbury Companion to Epistemology introduces some of the most exciting topics in contemporary analytic philosophy.
