Making it Evident: Evidence and Evidentness, Justification, and Belief
Patrick Rysiew also proposes a theory of evidence. He draws heavily on Thomas Reid. Rysiew emphasizes the functional roles evidence is typically said to play. He lists four roles in which the notion of evidence has been prominently cast. After noting some particular tensions among them, he offers an explanation of how adopting a Reidian theory of evidence—which he explicates in some detail—can bring unity to the notion of evidence, relieving the tension felt between its roles.
