New Book on Formal and Mainstream Epistemology

I thought I'd draw your attention to an excellent new book on mainstream and formal approaches to epistemology written by Vincent Hendricks (Roskilde, Demark), largely because it's a book that one might not normally think would be relevant to discussions about epistemic value. Crucially, however, this book raises some important meta-epistemological issues--such as concerning the role of inquiry in epistemology--which are central to the topic. For more information about the book, click here and here.

Incidentally, if you'd like to read a primer on epistemic logic before you tackle this, then you could do no better than read the new Stanford Enclyclopedia of Philosophy article on this subject by Hendricks and John Symons (Texas, El Paso). Click here.
