PHIL 419 - Epistemology (3 credits)


(Prereq: PHIL 101 , one PHIL course at the 300 level, and Sophomore standing or higher; or permission of the instructor) This course is an introduction to the problems and methods of modern epistemology. It explores central questions such as “What is it to know something?” and “What is it about some beliefs that make them more highly justified than others?” The central focus of the course is the study of the relationship between justification and knowledge. It pays careful attention to the skeptic who claims that no one ever knows anything and that no one is ever justified in believing anything.
