Contextualising Knowledge: Epistemology and Semantics

Contextualising Knowledge is my monograph, now in press, with Oxford University Press. (A previous working title was Knowledge in Theory and Context.)

The book develops and synthesises two main ideas: contextualism about knowledge ascriptions and a knowledge-first approach to epistemology. The theme of the book is that these two ideas fit together much better than it's widely thought they do. Not only are they not competitors: they each have something important to offer the other.

The book should be published sometime in 2017. In the meantime, here is an Introduction and Table of Contents. Here is a penultimate draft of the manuscript (under a previous working title). Please note that this version has many errors that have been corrected, and certainly a few that haven't. If you email me nicely and promise to buy and/or request that your library acquire the published book, I might be persuaded to send you the submitted version.
