Summary

Oxford Studies in Epistemology is a biennial publication which offers a regular snapshot of state-of-the-art work in this important field. Under the guidance of a distinguished editorial board composed of leading philosophers in North America, Europe and Australasia, it publishes exemplary papers in epistemology, broadly construed. Topics within its purview include:
*traditional epistemological questions concerning the nature of belief, justification, and knowledge, the status of scepticism, the nature of the a priori, etc;
*new developments in epistemology, including movements such as naturalized epistemology, feminist epistemology, social epistemology, and virtue epistemology, and approaches such as contextualism;
*foundational questions in decision-theory;
*confirmation theory and other branches of philosophy of science that bear on traditional issues in epistemology;
*topics in the philosophy of perception relevant to epistemology;
*topics in cognitive science, computer science, developmental, cognitive, and social psychology that bear directly on traditional epistemological questions; and
*work that examines connections between epistemology and other branches of philosophy, including work on testimony and the ethics of belief.
Anyone wanting to understand the latest developments at the leading edge of the discipline can start here.
