Matters connected with epistemology are crucial both for the knowledge-claims made by sociology and for how facts and knowledge are produced in social life. Sociology's approach to this differs from philosophical discussions and concerns practical enquiries into everyday knowledge-making, and its main areas of epistemological inquiry and key debates are sketched out.
