Stephen Hetherington is Professor of Philosophy at the University of New South Wales. He is the author of many books in epistemology, including Self-Knowledge: Beginning Philosophy Right Here and Now (Broadview, 2007) and Knowledge Puzzles: An Introduction to Epistemology (Westview, 1996).
"I'll let you in on a secret: Nobody has ever become a philosopher simply by reading about philosophy. You may not know how to think about what you have read. And if an ordinary teacher tells you what to think about the text, you may not know how to think about that! But, if you have Stephen Hetherington as your teacher, chances are you will become philosophical. His new book is not only a masterful introduction to the subject, technically correct, cleverly structured and a supremely enjoyable read. It's the most impressive guide to becoming philosophical I've seen." - Claudio de Almeida, Professor, Department of Philosophy and Human Sciences, Pontifical Catholic University at Porto Alegre, Brazil "This is a lucid, entertaining, and engaging introduction to philosophy and philosophical thinking. It brings sceptical ideas to life and shows the importance of taking such ideas seriously. Highly recommended." - Quassim Cassam, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick
