Abstract
Asking after the value of knowledge has not played any major role in recent history of epistemology. The paper takes up this question and explicates its content. An important challenge for defending the value of knowledge consists in the provocative thesis that knowledge is nothing but true belief. This thesis will be analysed and rejected. It will be shown that and why knowledge is more valuable than mere true belief. In answering the question concerning the value of knowledge it becomes clear that the emphatic slogan ”truth and nothing but the truth” is epistemologically untenable
