In this excellent treatment of the internalism-externalism debate in contemporary epistemology, Richard Fumerton explores its implications for traditional skeptical concerns. When one fully understands these implications, Fumerton argues, one will see philosophical usefulness of a foundationalism relying on acquaintance. Contending that the externalist response to skepticism is too quick and easy, Fumerton defends a version of internalism, but in doing so puts into stark relief the radically different alternatives for dealing with skepticism that our metaepistemological views force upon us.

Industry Reviews

Metaepistemology and Skepticism offers both a powerful defense of skepticism and a highly sophisticated and detailed tour through contemporary epistemology. Anyone interested in these matters will profit from a careful study of this fine book.--Jonathan Dancy, University of Reading
