This course begins with a brief historical survey of the philosophy of knowledge. Then, building on the Thomistic grounding presented in Epistemology I, it seeks to engage with contemporary questions and debates in Epistemology. This includes questions around certainty and demonstration in contemporary science and philosophy, Thomistic responses to skepticism, and where a Thomistic epistemology fits in the taxonomy of contemporary Epistemology
