Amsterdam, Noord-Holland

After decades of discussion about the proper analysis of knowledge, epistemologists have started working on questions concerning the value of what they so eagerly have analyzed: knowledge. The rubric of "The Value of Knowledge", covers such questions and topics as:

- Why is knowledge supposed to be more valuable than true belief (the 'Meno problem')?
- What sorts of values accrue to knowledge?
- Is there any value to ignorance?
- What, if anything, accounts for forbidden knowledge?
