Long description:
To know epistemology's history is to know better what contemporary epistemology could be and perhaps should be - and what it need not be and perhaps ought not to be.

Knowledge in Medieval Philosophy
covers the influence of Aristotle and Augustine during the Middle Ages.

Epistemology, including scepticism, was part of philosophy from the late-thirteenth century onwards, with knowledge being of great philosophical concern throughout the Middle Ages. By placing these medieval discussions within a wider setting, this volume sheds light on the era and its thinkers, as well as making these relevant for contemporary epistemologists.

Highlighting important aspects of epistemology with huge importance for our everyday lives, this volume's chapters cover such notions as testimony and intellectual virtues, along with thinkers such as Avicenna, Aquinas, Scotus, and Ockham.
