TitleDisagreement / edited by Richard Feldman and Ted A. Warfield
Imprint Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2010
Descript 291 p. ; 24 cm


"Disagreement is common: even informed. intelligent, and generally reasonable people olien come to different conclusions when confronted with what seems to be the same evidence. Can the competing conclusions be reasonable? If not. what can we reasonably think about the situation? This volume examines the epistemology of disagreement. Philosophical questions about disagreement arise in various areas, notably politics, ethics, aesthetics, and the philosophy of religion: but this will be the first book focusing on the general epistemic issues arising from informed disagreement. Twelve leading philosophers offer specially written essays which together will offer a starting-point for future work on this topic."--book jacket
