<epistemology> one of the major branches of philosophy, also known as philosophy of knowledge. It concerns the forms, nature, preconditions, sources, types and limits of knowledge.
Most of contemporary Anglo-American epistemology concentrates on:
1. the analysis of propositional knowledge (knowing that) as opposed to, e.g., procedural knowledge (knowing how) and knowledge by acquaintance (knowing who);
2. the nature, sources, and justification of its major types, e.g. a priori and empirical;
3. the tripartite analysis of knowledge as justified true belief (see Gettier problem;
4. supplying a theory of the justification of empirical knowledge (foundationalism, coherentism, or other).
5. the analysis of sceptical arguments.
