Epistemology is the branch of philosophy that studies knowledge. Often “epistemology” and “theory of knowledge” are used interchangeably, but this is misleading. Knowledge is just one of the topics studied in epistemology, though many epistemologists focus exclusively on knowledge, and even when epistemologists turn their attention to other topics—such as justification, reasons, evidence, testimony, experience, epistemic duty, epistemic value, and intellectual virtue—much of their work relates closely to knowledge.
