Summary and Info
If you are looking into this book you should already have a working knowledge of the vocabulary and problems one uses and faces respectively while investigating what we know and how we know it. In this book Sosa takes a rare approach to the usual questions raised in epistemology: skeptical challenges to knowledge, the things we are most closely acquainted with, and what counts as knowledge over and above true belief. For an epistemologist, his strong stance that knowledge is a performance (possibly even a performance that necessarily requires more than one person, but that is a matter of interpretation) calls for consideration and response. Bear in mind before purchase that his arguments are brief but thorough, which means he uses many condensed phrases that require close atention.
