Oxford Studies in Epistemology is a biennial publicaton 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.
