This volume collects essays by leading philosophers of different but coinciding persuasions in order to generate a multilateral conversation—which is highly desirable, given the manifestly common concerns, and the breadth of significance associated with these matters of collective epistemic practice. The chapters each explore some region of our collective epistemic practice. The chapters in the Epistemology section address topics that make them fit squarely within the core social epistemological remit; those in the other sections address epistemological strands running through topics that primarily belong in other subject areas of philosophy. Together the essays indicate the richness and complexity of the philosophical issues generated by thinking about the epistemic life of groups. The Introduction includes a brief outline of the individual papers, before closing with remarks about some of the central issues raised.
