Making Sense of the World, (PDF) provides original work on the nature of understanding by a range of distinguished philosophers. However, some of the essays are by scholars well known for their work on understanding, many of the essays bring entirely new figures to the discussion.

The important purpose of the volume is twofold: to improve debates in epistemology and the philosophy of science, where work on understanding has currently flourished, and to jumpstart new questions and debates about understanding in other areas of philosophy, like aesthetics, ethics, and the philosophy of religion.
