This book contains chapters on epistemic modality by top researchers in the area. Several chapters about the question of what kind of possibilities epistemic possibilities ask: What kind of a possibility space do we need in order to model epistemic possibility? Is it a different kind of space from the one we need to model, for example, metaphysical possibility? Others are about the workings of epistemic modal expressions in natural language, for example, should we be contextualists about epistemic modals, or relativists, or should we go in for some sort of expressivist theory?
