What is knowledge? Why do we want it? Is knowledge possible? How do we get it? What about other epistemic values like understanding and certainty? Why are so many epistemologists worried about luck? In ON EPISTEMOLOGY Linda Zagzebski situates epistemological questions within the broader framework of what we care about and why we care about it. Questions of value shape all of the above questions and explain some significant philosophical trends: the obsession with answering the skeptic, the flight from realism, and the debate between naturalism and anti-naturalism. THE WADSWORTH PHILOSOPHICAL TOPICS SERIES (under the general editorship of Robert Talisse, Vanderbilt University) presents readers with concise, timely, and insightful introductions to a variety of traditional and contemporary philosophical subjects. With this series, students of philosophy will be able to discover the richness of philosophical inquiry across a wide array of concepts, including hallmark philosophical themes and themes typically underrepresented in mainstream philosophy publishing. Written by a distinguished list of scholars who have garnered particular recognition for their excellence in teaching, this series presents the vast sweep of today’s philosophical exploration in highly accessible and affordable volumes. These books will prove valuable to philosophy teachers and their students as well as to other readers who share a general interest in philosophy.

Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN. All academic writing requires skills in critical thinking, close reading, argumentation and research, but disciplinary differences among the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and applied fields leave students and instructors frustrated by a one-size-fits-all approach to these skills. For writing programs committed to preparing students for the full range of disciplines they will enter, An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing presents a proven pedagogy that helps students to adapt to the academic writing tasks of different disciplinary discourse communities. The pedagogy features a series of flexible, transferable frameworks and concrete connections to the disciplines including unique Insider’s video interviews with scholars and peers. Based on the best practices of a first-year composition program that has trained hundreds of teachers who have instructed thousands of students, An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing offers two books in one: an innovative rhetoric of academic writing (available as its own book), and a thematic reader that foregrounds real readings from the disciplines.
