There is a lot that we don t know. That means that there are a lot of possibilities that are epistemically speaking, open. For instance, we don't know whether it rained in Seattle yesterday. So for us at least there is an epistemic possibility where it rained in Seattle yesterday and one where it did not. What are these epistemic possibilities? They do not match up with metaphysical possibilities - there are various cases where something is epistemically possible but not metaphysically possible, and vice versa. How do we understand the semantics of statements of epistemic modality? The ten new essays in this volume explore various answers to these questions, including those offered by contextualism, relativism, and expressivism.
