In this excellent book, Duncan Pritchard returns to the topic of external world skepticism, proposing a bifurcated response that supersedes his previous treatments in Epistemic Luck (Oxford University Press, 2005) and Epistemological Disjunctivism (Oxford University Press
Conceived of as a supplement to the
International Journal for the Study of Skepticism, the series
Brill Studies in Skepticism aims to publish original historical scholarship and cutting-edge contemporary research on philosophical skepticism. The series covers a wide range of areas: the history of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism, as well as systematic discussions of skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language.
Brill Studies in Skepticism therefore welcomes proposals for monographs and edited volumes from historians of philosophy and contemporary philosophers working in a variety of methods and traditions.
All proposals are evaluated by the Series Editors with the assistance of the members of the Advisory Board. If the proposed monograph or edited volume is deemed to make an original contribution to the study of the history or significance of philosophical skepticism, the author or editor will be invited to submit a complete manuscript, which will undergo double-blind peer review.
The Series Editors and the members of the Advisory Board are excluded from authoring monographs and from participating in edited volumes in the series.
In three distinct volumes the editors bring together a distinguished group of contributors whose essays chart the history, practice, and future of international humanitarian law. At a time when the war crimes of recent decades are being examined in the International Criminal Tribunals for Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and a new International Criminal Court is being created as a permanent venue to try such crimes, the role of international humanitarian law is seminal to the functioning of such attempts to establish a just world order.
The events of September 2001 and the worldwide threat of terrorist attacks, bring into sharper focus questions about the ramifications of unconventional warfare and how prisoners taken in armed conflict short of declared war should be treated. Here again international humanitarian law can provide the guideposts needed to find a just course through difficult times. The intent of these volumes is to help to inform where humanitarian law had its origins, how it has been shaped by world events, and why it can be employed to serve the future.
Higher Education. Linking Research, Policy and Practice investigates and discusses a diverse range of topical themes in the broad field of Higher Education, such as: trends in strategic management and governance, new insights in (digital) teaching and learning methods, sustainable HR policy, research excellence, third mission policy, or renewed approaches to transnational cooperation and internationalisation. The books in this series form a unique compilation of selected papers presented at the yearly EAIR-forum, which is an international association for higher education researchers, practitioners, students, managers and policy-makers. Herewith the books not only bring together a range of well-selected topical papers, but also a diversity of perspectives: scientific investigations of reputed scholars, critical evidence-based papers of third space professionals, and/or policymakers’ perspectives on the daily practice and management of higher education institutions and systems. In line with the history of EAIR, the series aims to cross boundaries between types of activities and seeks to cater for a mix of contributors.
Epistemological Disjunctivism ( ed ) is the view, championed by Duncan Pritchard (2012) , that when one has paradigmatic perceptual knowledge that P, one’s epistemic support for believing P is constituted by S’s factive state of seeing that P. It is an alleged virtue of ed
As the first international journal entirely devoted to philosophical skepticism, the
International Journal for the Study of Skepticism publishes high-quality articles and discussion notes on any field of research relevant to the study of skeptical thought. The journal also contains critical notices and reviews of major books on skepticism, and organizes book symposia on recent ground-breaking works. On occasion, it publishes special issues devoted to current lively debates on specific topics or authors.
The wide range of areas covered includes the history and significance of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism as well as discussions of current specific skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, ontology, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. The journal is fully committed to the highest standards of clarity and rigor, and serves as a forum for debate and exchange of ideas among leading international philosophers and scholars. It solicits contributions from contemporary philosophers working in a variety of methods and traditions, including both analytic and continental philosophy, as well as contributions from philosophers and scholars working out of the history of philosophy. It thus brings together cutting-edge contemporary discussion of issues related to skepticism and serious historical scholarship on this subject.
The journal publishes mainly in English, but, in keeping with its international scope, submissions in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish are also welcome. For inquiries, please contact
