Epistemology

Epistemology is the theory of knowledge and looks at things such as what is knowledge? Can we know knowledge? How do we know?

This is a self study section on Epistemology where I’m studying from the book: Epistemology - A Contemporary Introduction to the Theory of Knowledge by Robert Audi. Some may wonder why I’m studying this or even care. It certainly is a bit dry or at the very least, not very applicable to my life. Well, I’ve developed an interest in philosophy. Ethics and morality really did get me into it, but upon my causal consumption I found myself becoming very interested in epistemology. It seems quite important to me to understand knowledge and whether I had good reasons for my own.

I asked for advice on where to start with philosophy and I received the same piece of advice - start where there’s an interest. And I get it. Philosophy is a massive field and it’s one that isn’t easy to consume, so pick something that will get you into it.

This is me starting in a more formal manner, instead of just consuming random articles on random topics.
