Reflective Knowledge draws together ground-breaking work in epistemology by Ernest Sosa. He argues for a reflective virtue epistemology based on virtuous circularity, shows how this idea may be found explicitly or just below the surface in such illustrious predecessors as Descartes and Moore, and defends the view against its rivals.

Guy Axtell. Philosophical Quarterly Sosa's i Reflective Knowledge r reliably provides the focused, tightly reasoned treatment of his subject that readers have come to expect of this pre-eminent contemporary philosopher. Read this book for a learned and rewarding treatment of the problem of scepticism, and of the course of epistemology from Descartes' time to the present.

Heather Battaly, Analysis Reviews a magnificent book

Bruce Hunter & Adam Morton, Mind anyone reading this rich and important book will emerge with a refreshed view of how the history of epistemology relates to the cutting edge.

Frederick F. Schmitt, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews It should go without saying that Sosa's book is essential reading for anyone with even a passing interest in contemporary epistemology. His distinction between animal and reflective knowledge is a fundamental contribution to the field. The approach he sketches in this readable book is important and defensible. I know of no more plausible approach, no more accessible presentation.
