Learning objectives
The aim of the course is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of modal epistemology as a highly relevant subfield of epistemology and the philosophy of mind. They will be familiar with the methods used to address questions of possibility and to metaphilosophically reflect on our ways of addressing them.
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge and Understanding
The students will know the relevant most recent literature on modal epistemology. They will be aware of the problems besetting modal epistemology and have an overview of potential solutions and objections to them.

Ability to Apply Knowledge and Understanding
At the end of the course the students will have acquired the capacity of precisely formulating epistemological problems pertaining to our knowledge of possibility and necessity, of assessing the most relevant possible solutions to these problems, and of tackling objections to them. They can identify unsolved issues in the debate and envisage innovative solutions
