Thinking about Knowing

Jay F. Rosenberg

Oxford University Press

Discusses epistemic foundationalism. Examines the confrontation between Wilfrid Sellars's critique of the ‘Myth of the Given’ and William Alston's defence of ‘immediate knowledge’, and explores and endorses Sellars's strong epistemic internalism and the integrated normative accounts of justification, language‐mastery, concept‐possession, and perceptual experience that support it. The proceduralist thesis that the activity of justifying is prior to the state of being justified is elucidated and defended.

Keywords:   Alston, foundationalism, immediate knowledge, internalism, justification, Myth of the Given, proceduralist, Sellars
