My second online course with Oxford University Continuing Education commenced this week. There seem to be 25 or so students on the course, from many different countries. The first week involves making introductions, reviewing the material concerning the online method of study and beginning to get to grips with some epistemology.
The set text used throughout the course is What is This Thing Called Knowledge by Duncan Pritchard.
The first formal question I have been tasked with addressing is as follows:
"say what you think about the instrumental value of true belief? Is it always for example, instrumentally valuable?"
