This chapter formulates the new tracking account of knowledge, in terms of conditional probability rather than counterfactuals. The new view dispenses with relativization to the method of belief formation, and gives knowledge closure via a recursion clause that incorporates a new account of knowledge of implication. This view is defended against charges that the tracking view is too strong.

Keywords:   epistemic closure, skepticism, tracking, sensitivity, method, belief, known implication, probability, variation, adherence
