Carefully-calibrated and judiciously-curated, Contemporary Epistemology is a new upper-level anthology which brings together some of the most significant contemporary writing on the theory of knowledge centered around the general theme of the ethics of belief. Sections probe questions such as whether there are norms on belief, how norms on belief relate to norms on action, and how we should understand the nature of epistemic value and normativity. Designed to sit alongside our highly-successful introductory anthology of canonical readings Epistemology: An Anthology, Second Edition—and editedby the same distinguished editorial team—the collection draws from a large, diverse, and evolving literature for a concise and well-balanced selection of readings. Striking an excellent representational balance between scholarship that has influenced modern epistemology in recent years and the contributions of emerging thought leaders, Jeremy Fantl, Matthew McGrath, and Ernest Sosa have selected 17 readings that represent a broad and vital part of contemporary epistemology. Organized into seven thoughtful and distinct sections which include virtue epistemology, practical reasons for belief, permissivism about belief, epistemic dysfunctions, among others, readings are further contextualized by editorial material meant to help readers engage with the arguments themselves. Upper level companion anthology to our best-selling Epistemology: An Anthology, Second Edition Edited by a distinguished editorial team, including Ernie Sosa, one of the most influential contemporary epistemologists Includes many of the most important contributions made in recent decades by leading authors in the field Offer 17 contemporary readings including articles by women philosophers and from new, upcoming voices in the field Strikes an excellent balance between coverage of core foundational topics and cutting edge methodologies An essential collection for students and philosophers concerned with recent developments in the theory of knowledge, Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology is a strong contemporary resource for students, instructors, and active scholars in epistemology.

This substantial anthology comprises the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of readings in analytic philosophy of the twentieth century. It provides a survey and analysis of the key issues, figures and concepts. The volume is divided into seven sections: philosophy of language, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, free will and personal identity, ethics, and methodology. It includes the most familiar texts of the analytic tradition, as well as several others that are less often anthologized. Several articles are logically related to each other. For example, Moore's Four Forms of Skepticism, appears together with selections from Wittgenstein's On Certainty; Langford's discussion of the paradox of analysis and Moore's reply are both included; and Quine's Two Dogmas of Empiricism is paired with Grice and Strawson's In Defense of a Dogma. The distinctive selections and internal coherence make this anthology an invaluable guide for anyone interested in twentieth-century and analytic philosophy.

Transzendentale Geschichte

English summary: Transcendental History defends the claim that historicality is an essential prerequisite for human knowledge, and hence that human beings are always historical beings in a strict sense. This theory is vital to the present direction of European philosophy. By explaining this theory, and by tracing its development from the days of Kant and Hegel to those of Derrida and Agamben in a tale of how transcendental and speculative philosophy gradually gave way to historical thinking in the shape of phenomonology, hermeneutics and deconstruction, Soren Gosvig Olesen not only enriches our understanding of the history of philosophy but also contributes to epistemology, the philosophy of history, and philosophical anthropology. Seeking a broader audience, Transcendental History addresses itself to all those interested in the questions and controversies motivating contemporary European philosophy and its critical engagement with its past. German description: Im Austausch in erster Linie mit der Transzendentalphilosophie und der spekulativen Philosophie geht es um zwei Zielsetzungen: Um den Begriff der geschichtlichen Zeit und die These, dass Geschichte die transzendentale Bedingung der menschlichen Erkenntnis bildet. Soren Gosvig Olesen unterscheidet zwischen Geschichte im transzendentalen und im empirischen Sinne. Den Ausdruck transzendentale Geschichte findet man im Werk herausragender Philosophen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts, so bei Jacques Derrida und bei Giorgio Agamben. Das Augenmerk liegt dabei auf der Tatsache, dass ein solcher Begriff dort auftaucht, wo Philosophen einen Sinn fur Geschichte erworben haben, der unter Geschichte anderes als nur den Gegenstand einer Fachwissenschaft versteht. Diese Entwicklung wird u. a. in Heideggers Geschichtlichkeit und Seinsgeschichte, mit Gadamers innerer Geschichte, aber auch mit Merleau-Pontys Urgeschichte deutlich.
