Pryor and Kelly's book will offer a sophisticated introduction to the core themes driving debate in contemporary epistemology which, commensurate with the series brief, will not blandly survey the field. Unlike many of the dry, analytical epistemology texts which tour through and adjudicate between the various attempts to define knowledge, Kelly and Pryor take as the central concern of epistemology the question 'What Should I Believe?'. This refocus reflects a general move away from seeing 'knowledge' and its conditions as the main concern of epistemology. So, although its hardly revolutionary to focus on normative questions of justification and rationality of belief, the approach Kelly and Pryor take, plus the fact they are two of the finest young epistemologists in the US should give this a really fresh feel (as reviewers testify). Consider the following question: 'What should I believe?' This question is a normative question. It is, of course, notoriously obscure exactly what one is claiming when one claims that a given question is a normative question. (Indeed, this issue is among those which we will explore.) But intuitively, the question 'What should I believe?' differs from purely descriptive questions such as 'What do I believe?' or 'What will I believe?
