  • First collection of essays on a lively new trend in philosophy
  • Unique combination of probabilistic and logical approaches to the theory of knowledge, belief and rationality
  • Addresses both formal and mainstream contemporary epistemology
  • State-of-the-art contributions by both leading and emerging researchers
  • A user-friendly introduction to the area accessible to researchers, undergraduates and graduate students
This volume is a collation of original contributions from the key actors of a new trend in the contemporary theory of knowledge and belief, that we call “dynamic epistemology”. It brings the works of these researchers under a single umbrella by highlighting the coherence of their current themes, and by establishing connections between topics that, up until now, have been investigated independently. It also illustrates how the new analytical toolbox unveils questions about the theory of knowledge, belief, preference, action, and rationality, in a number of central axes in dynamic epistemology: temporal, social, probabilistic and even deontic dynamics.
