  • Tripartite knowledge
    • Justified, true belief
      • Necessary and sufficient conditions
        • Each condition is necessary for knowledge so you cannot have knowledge without them
        • Three conditions together are sufficient for knowledge, you do not need anything mroe
      • I know that p: Proposition P is true, I believe that P and my belief in P is justified
      • Justification needed because reason and evidence needed to make sure that the knowledge is not obtained via irrational grounds
        • But justification is too subjective, one man justification may not be irrational to another
      • Is belief necessary if someone believes they don't know the answers on the exam but they do?
        • Answer: Yes, their belief is unconsious
      • Is truth necessary?
        • We do not normally say we can know what is false (you think you know)
      • Virtue epistomology
        • Claims you know that P if your true belief is a result of you exercising your intellectual virtues
          • Owes to your abilities rather than blind lucj
            • Accuracy: Is your belief true?
            • Adroitness the way it was formed an exercise of your intellectual virtues?
            • Aptness: is it true because the person used their intellectual virtues?
      • Gattier style counter expamples
        • What if you infer your justified true belief from something false?
          • No false lemmas
            • You did not infer P from anything false (added to tripartite)
      • Realiabilism
        • Your belief is caused by a reliable cognitive process
          • But a belief can be true and reliable but not knowledge (eg barn façades)
            • Improved reliabilism = You are able to discriminate between relevant possibilities in the actual situation
      • Infallibilism
        • Fior justification to secure knowledge, it must guarantee truth
    • Focuses on propositional knowledge:knowledge that something is the case e.g 2+2 = 4
      • ability knowledge:knowing how to do something
        • Acquaintance knowledge: Knowing of something
  • Focuses on propositional knowledge:knowledge that something is the case e.g 2+2 = 4
    • ability knowledge:knowing how to do something
      • Acquaintance knowledge: Knowing of something
