terminology of electric flux density

In my book is says the electric flux density D is equal to εE if the medium is linear and isotropic, where E is the electric field and permittivity ε is a scalar.

I have no idea what they mean by a linear and isotropic medium.. How am I suppose to know if the medium is linear or isotropic?
