The writing is clear enough for undergraduates yet goes into sufficient depth for more expert readers. Recommended. CHOICE, Vol. 44, No. 6 (February 2007) A useful reference work for both students and scholars of philosophy. American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) This is a useful contribution to both the series and the field...A good clear short dictionary of epistemology in a well-known series...Baergen is really clear in defining and cross-referencing key terms. Reference Reviews, Vol. 21, No. 3 (2007) This single-authored dictionary is a welcome addition...A useful source of numerous short definitions. Philosophy in Review, October 2008 This branch of philosophy, most concisely described as the theory of knowledge, investigates belief, evidence, and claims of knowledge, and it is applied to a wide range of issues and ideas. This reference describes the 500 or so theories, events, concepts, and personalities most closely allied with epistemology, and includes an extensive bibliography. Baergen (philosophy, Idaho State U.) includes a wide range of people, including Saint Bonaventure, Pyrrho of Elis, and more contemporary luminaries like Quine and Putnam and an equally wide variety of concepts such as the "brain in a vat" questions and parapsychology. The result is a concise and portable text that could serve college students, general readers, and professionals experiencing a momentary lapse in knowledge, theoretical or otherwise.
