"Many helpful features (bibliography, glossary, etc.) for students. Good mix of historical reflection and current state of the issues."--Steve Nichols, Lancaster Bible College Advance praise: "Co-authored by three philosophers, the contents and organization of this text have had to pass intense scrutiny guided by three different approaches and sets of background assumptions. The outcome is balanced, well organized, and engaging. The authors have done their work very well indeed." --Ernest Sosa, Brown University "A highly useful text for undergraduate courses in epistemology. Perhaps the best text of its kind to date."--James Maffie, Colorado State University "A remarkably clear, accessible, and useful text."--Ralph Aquila, Tulane University
