This course complements the Epistemology I course by continuing the discussion of thematic topics in contemporary epistemology, covering: responses to skepticism, and problems particular to testimony, memory, and perception that bear on religious faith. The Aristotelian account of knowledge will be revisited in the light of contemporary virtue epistemology.
