A handy collection of readings regarding the philosophical areas of Epistemology and Metaphysics that includes both historical and contemporary works, this book gives the reader a sense of how philosophical issues have evolved over time.

Forty-eight selections from over 30 philosophers past and present deal with topics such as a priori knowledge, skepticism, foundationalism versus coherentism, universals, identity and change, causation, and the relationship between perception and the external world.

An accessibly slim volume of some the most interesting works from philosophers past and present, this book should appeal to readers who are interested in the philosophical areas of metaphysics and epistemology.
