According to Timothy Williamson, all evidence is knowledge, and all knowledge is evidence: E = K. He argues for the following theses: (1) all evidence is propositional; (2) all propositional evidence is knowledge; and (3) all knowledge is evidence. (1)-(3) entail E = K. In an earlier paper it was argued that Williamson's views on knowledge, justification, and evidence commit him to an implausible view about perceptual knowledge and justification. Williamson has since responded to this criticism, and this chapter reconsiders the issues.
