Title : Theory of knowledge

Description :
This website offers a variety of resources on the theory of knowledge, chiefly related to a course on the subject taught by G.J. Mattey at the University of California, Davis. The most substantial item on the site is a set of extensive lecture notes; these are intended to be used in conjunction with Keith Lehrer's book, 'Theory of Knowledge', but are comprehensive enough to constitute an introduction to the subject by themselves. Many aspects of the topic are covered, including truth, coherence, justification, and scepticism. There are also sample exam and essay questions, an online version of a paper by G.J. Mattey entitled 'Self-trust and the reasonableness of acceptance', a section (currently under construction) on prominent theorists of knowledge, and a short but useful links list. This is a valuable resource for those studying or teaching the theory of knowledge.
