PHIL 24A: Knowledge First Epistemology

What is the nature of knowledge? What is the role knowledge should play in our lives? Such questions have been central to philosophy since its inception. It is thus surprising that towards the end of the 20th Century, some philosophers suggested that knowledge is irrelevant to questions regarding what we should believe and how should we act. This tutorial will focus on the knowledge-first project in contemporary epistemology, which was initiated by Timothy Williamson and aims to put knowledge back in the center of philosophical thinking. The goal of this tutorial is to understand the knowledge-first project and its critics. We will focus on recent discussions regarding the metaphysics of knowledge, knowledge norms, and the way knowledge-first epistemology interacts with cognitive science and decision theory. Although no philosophical background is required, a familiarity with philosophy at the level of PHIL 80 will be assumed.
