Epistemology: 1. Introduction to Theory of Knowledge

In this video, Jennifer Nagel (University of Toronto) launches our Theory of Knowledge series.  We look at the line between knowing and just believing something, focusing on factors like truth and confidence.

Professor of Philosophy at University of Toronto

My research focuses on knowledge, belief, and our capacities to track these states in ourselves and others. I’m interested in the history of epistemology, both in the Western tradition back to Plato, and in the Classical Indian and Tibetan traditions.  I also work in contemporary philosophy of mind, with special interests in metacognition and mental state attribution.
