Good Knowledge, Bad Knowledge

Stephen Hetherington

Oxford University Press

Epistemologists usually talk of their theories of knowledge as articulating their understanding of knowledge. Do they thereby take themselves to have knowledge of knowledge? Is a true theory of knowledge a piece of knowledge about knowledge? It should be. But how likely are epistemological methods to yield knowledge about knowledge? This chapter argues that knowledge about knowledge is less hard to obtain than some epistemologists have thought.
