(p.103) 4 Human Knowledge and Reflection
Knowledge and its Place in Nature

Hilary Kornblith (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Some have argued that knowledge, or human knowledge, requires some sort of reflection, usually on the reasonableness of one's beliefs. It is argued that there is no such requirement, either for knowledge in general, or even for human knowledge. Reflection is not always an epistemically good thing; when it is epistemically valuable, what is valuable about it is already explained by a reliability requirement on knowledge. Knowledge does not require reflection of any sort.

Keywords:   belief, epistemic value, human knowledge, knowledge, reasonableness, reflection, reliability
