Attempts to radically revise the still predominant Cartesian underpinnings of epistemological theorizing, by attacking the belief that all knowledge is and all epistemology should be primarily based on first‐person knowledge. Davidson holds that a necessary condition of knowledge is third‐person knowledge, in the sense that all kinds of knowledge presuppose the concept of objective truth and such a concept is only accessible to communicative creatures that share a common world of objects in space and time. Knowledge, therefore, far from arising through moves from the subjective to the objective, emerges holistically.
