Example text

The theory is that knowledge just is justified, true belief. Thus, on the theory in question, KKΦ says that what is knowable is that Φ ∧ BΦ ∧ JΦ, for that is what KΦ is. The matter may not be so straightforward. A triangle “just is” a plane figure whose angles sum to two right angles. ” Perhaps one might say that the formula Φ∧BΦ∧JΦ gives the semantic content or the meaning of the statement KΦ. Then if Karl believes that KΦ, then he must know that KΦ is Φ ∧ BΦ ∧ JΦ. Otherwise, Karl has a belief that he does not understand.

So KKΦ holds in w. 3 Externalism Perhaps the intuitions underlying the KK-thesis are internalist. If so, then if we opt for an externalist epistemology, we lose the basic motivation for the KK-thesis. Of course, this does not entail that the KK-thesis fails on a particular externalism. Nevertheless, there is a widespread view that the KK-thesis does fail on externalist epistemologies. Part of the entry on “externalism” in Simon Blackburn’s Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy reads: In the theory of knowledge, externalism is the view that a person might know something by being suitably situated with respect to it, without that relationship being in any sense within his purview.

92), and his argument is that it is always a mistake to give in to this temptation. He has in mind not just traditional “given” or “transparent” states (for instance, being in pain, or having it appear to one that ), states about which some philosophers have supposed us to be infallible or omniscient. Rather, Williamson wants to consider also more sophisticated accounts where we might be mistaken about the state we are in if we are, for instance, deceived by ourselves or others, or unaware of being in the state if, for instance, we’re too busy with something else to reflect on the fact.
