Oxford Handbook of Skepticism by John Greco
Book DescriptionIn the history of philosophical thought, few themes loom as large as skepticism. Skepticism has been the most visible and important part of debates about knowledge. Skepticism at its most basic questions our cognitive achievements, challenges our ability to obtain reliable knowledge; casting doubt on our attempts to seek and understand the truth about everything from ethics, to other minds, religious belief, and even the underlying structure of matter and reality. Since Descartes, the defense of knowledge against skepticism has been one of the primary tasks not just of epistemology but philosophy itself. The Oxford Handbook of Skepticism features twenty-six newly commissioned chapters by top figures in the field. Part One contains articles explaining important kinds of skeptical reasoning. Part Two focuses on responses to skeptical arguments. Part Three concentrates on important contemporary issues revolving around skepticism. As the first volume of its kind, the articles make significant contributions to the debate on skepticism.

Epistemic Evaluation, Hardback (October 2015)
Twelve leading philosophers explore and apply a particular methodology in epistemology, which might be called purposeful epistemology. The idea is that considerations about the point and purpose of our concepts (or epistemic norms) promise to yield important insights for epistemological theorizing.
