  • The study of knowledge, justification, and rationality. There are several areas of epistemological investigation. One is what kinds of knowledge there may be, such as propositional knowledge or knowledge that such and such is the case, and knowledge by acquaintance. Another area studies the structure of justification, such as whether justification must rest on foundations or whether it may include coherence considerations. Epistemologists also investigate the nature of knowledge itself, whether, for instance, it is more than justified true belief, and the thesis of skepticism, which claims that there is no knowledge at all.
