Epistemology II

Teacher: Alexander Gebharter

Content: What is knowledge? How does it relate to truth
and rationality? How can we justify our beliefs and
how should we revise them in the light of new
incoming evidence? These are some of the main
questions raised within epistemology.
“Epistemology I” and “Epistemology II” explore
questions like these and how they are answered by
the current accounts on the market as well as the
new problems these answers give rise to.

Topics discussed include:

  • Cognitive success
  • Knowledge and belief
  • Rationality, truth, and justification
  • The problem of induction
  • The structure of knowledge
  • Belief dynamics
