TOC: [ Texts ] [ Requirements ] [ Website ] [ Tentative Schedule ]

There is only one required text for the course: Tim Williamson's book Knowledge and its Limits. Note that the entire book is available online (UCB subscription only) via Oxford Scholarship Online. It should also be available at local bookstores, and (of course) you can always get a copy online. We plan to work through the book at a pace of one chapter per week. There are twelve chapters, which is just about right for the semester (given that Williamson will be visiting in the second week of the seminar – see below).
