Contemporary theories of knowledge

What is knowledge? How much can we know? And how do we know anything? One major field of philosophy is the study of knowledge, i.e., “epistemology” (in Greek “epistémé” means knowledge and “logos” can mean study). In a series of sharp, focused, and well-animated video lectures, Jennifer Nagel introduces the contemporary field. The first episode is linked here; explore all six of them. If you find epistemology interesting, you may want to consider contemporary versions of skepticism in episode #2 in light of ancient Pyrrhonian Skepticism.
