Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014. Pp. vii + 363. isbn: 978-0-19-965834-3.If I gave this book the justice it deserves, this review would never be completed. Dodd and Zardini have brought together a fine collection of essays, each of which reward careful study. After Dodd and Zardini’s introductory essay, there are fifteen essays coming in at over three-hundred pages built around questions about perceptual justification. Ernest Sosa provides an excellent opening essay on Descartes’s epistemology and its relation to Sosa’s own virtue epistemology. Sosa argues that Descartes’s epistemology aims for reflective knowledge of the puzzles that arise from animal knowledge. Descartes’s goal is best understood as achieving a secure second-order perspective on the first-order animal knowledge. Descartes is not attempting to rebut a radical skepticism about natural, pre-reflective beliefs. The goal is to find a perspective at which we can reflectively endorse these beliefs from a stable and secure perspective.After Sosa’s inaugural essay, Dodd and Zardini’s volume divides nicely into three sections. The first section “The Immediacy of the Senses” discusses dogmatism, the view that perception can justify belief independently of any warranted beliefs about the conditions of perception. This section features essays by Elia Zardini, Brian Weatherson, Jonathan Vogel,
