Title : Epistemology page

Description :
Created by prominent epistemologist Keith DeRose (1962- ), this site provides information on and a guide to further resources in epistemology and related areas. For teachers and students, there are recommendations for textbooks, anthologies, and collections of original papers on epistemology, with links through to publishers' websites, where available. There is also a set of links to online courses with syllibi. For the undergraduate in particular, there is an introductory essay by DeRose on epistemology. For the postgraduate, there is a detailed discussion of universities in North America and the U.K. with strengths in epistemology, as well as a summary of recent noteworthy faculty moves. Finally, there is an extensive list of important contemporary epistemologists, with links to their home or departmental web pages, plus a bibliography of their notable publications since 1995. Near the top of the page is a link to a separate annotated bibliography on contextualism (the view that knowledge is essentially context-relative), which is a particular area of interest to DeRose. There is also a link to the epistemology blog site, Certain Doubts, to which DeRose is a contributor. The Epistemology Page would be of value to students, researchers, and teachers interested in contemporary theory of knowledge.
