Instructor: Gillian Russell. This course meets TR 2:00 – 3:15 p.m. in CW 103.
This course will be a survey of some key problems in epistemology. Topics will include the definition of knowledge, arguments for radical skepticism, theories of knowledge, and the problem of induction. Questions considered include: What is knowledge? Can I know that I am not dreaming? Am I justified in my beliefs about the external world? Can I know that other people have minds? How can I justify my beliefs about the future? How does the scientific method work?
Prerequisite: at least 1 PHIL course.
