122 Theory of Knowledge Holliday TuTh 2:00-3:30 Moffitt 103

An upper-division course in the philosophical theory of knowledge. Not a general survey of the field, but an investigation of fundamental epistemological issues raised by science: the underdetermination of theory by data and its relation to skepticism; the problem of induction; and attempts to give an account of how hypotheses are confirmed by evidence.
