He achieves this result by attempting to show that Bonjour's famous clairvoyance examples do not demonstrate what Bonjour thinks that they demonstrate, namely, epistemic irrationality despite the satisfaction of externalist constraints on knowledge. This book puts forward a much-needed reappraisal of Immanuel Kant's conception of and response to skepticism, as set forth principally in the Critique of Pure Reason.
He articulates and defends a reliabilist theory ofknowledge that belongs firmly in the truth-tracking tradition.

José Zalabardo's new book is refreshing. Scepticism and Reliable Belief is required reading for anyone interested in current thinking about reliabilism and scepticism. The book contains a wealth of resources that any reliabilist can utilise in dealing with standard problems. it makes impressive progress. Robert McKenna, Mind.
The majority of the book is concerned with developing and defending the theory of knowledge. The theory is sophisticated, nuanced, and detailed. There is an appendix consisting of thirty-four theorems derived from the Kolmogorov axioms of probability, and he uses these theorems to apply his theory to important cases. I will have to ignore many of the subtleties here and focus on the overarching view.

José L. Zalabardo, Scepticism and Reliable Belief, Oxford University Press, 2012, 213pp. This is the main argumentative thrust of Zalabardo's book. But he's also up to some other things. To put it far too mildly, skepticism has been a thorn in epistemology's side for, well, a very long time. In Chapters 4 and 5, he considers inferential knowledge, addressing two questions: how must two propositions be related if one of them is to provide adequate evidential support for the other, and when p adequately supports q, how can a subject have inferential knowledge that q on the basis of p?
Clottes’ book, translated from the French, introduces the reader to current issues in the study of parietal art, the technical term for prehistoric paintings found on walls both outside and in caves.
Clottes’ book, translated from the French, introduces the reader to current issues in the study of parietal art, the technical term for prehistoric paintings found on walls both outside and in caves. One can imagine the difficulty studying these ancient works of art, full of animals, humans, geometric patterns, and more-but with no written sources helping scholars understand the world from which they emerge.
