Instructor: Matthew Kotzen. This course meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:00-12:15PM.

What is it for a belief to be reasonable or justified?  What is it for one of our beliefs to count as knowledge, and how are knowledge and justification related?  Skeptics about justification and knowledge have arguments that, they think, show that we don’t have any justified beliefs or knowledge.  Are these arguments good?  If not, what is wrong with these arguments and what does this show us?

The prerequisite for this course is at least one prior course in philosophy.
