What does it mean to have knowledge? How do we know things, and what can be known? These are some of the central questions in the discipline of epistemology (“the theory of knowledge”). The answers to these questions are not as obvious as some casual thought may suggest. If you think the senses provide us with knowledge, how will you know when your senses deceive you? If you think knowledge is gained through reasoning, where will you start reasoning? And how do social (identity) factors such as gender, race, and class affect epistemology? This course investigates these questions and more.
