||The question for which Kant is best known -- how are synthetic a priori cognitions possible? -- is an epistemological one, as is his most famous doctrine, that we cannot cognize 'things in themselves' [Dinge an sich selbst]. Consequently, Kant and Kantian ideas have figured prominently in discussion in epistemology, in particular about a priori knowledge. However, more recently scholars have widened their attention to consider aspects of Kant's epistemology that reflect the wide range of epistemic attitudes studied by contemporary epistemologists: belief, assent, opinion, knowledge by testimony, etc. The contemporary separation between metaphysics and epistemology as distinct philosophical domains is somewhat alien to Kant; he typically discusses simultaneously what we would now call 'metaphysics' and 'epistemology,' making it difficult to discern how a particular claim is to be taken. Consequently, Kant's epistemology has traditionally been discussed alongside his views in metaphysics (and philosophy of mind). Many of the most influential works on Kant's epistemology also treat broader themes in his philosophy, although some more recent scholars have tried to isolate distinctively epistemic issues.
