Apt Belief and Reflective Knowledge, Volume 2: Reflective Knowledge

4.33  ·  Rating Details ·  3 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
Reflective Knowledge argues for a reflective virtue epistemology based on a kind of virtuous circularity that may be found explicitly or just below the surface in the epistemological writings of Descartes, Moore, and now Davidson, who on Sosa's reading also relies crucially on an assumption of virtuous circularity. Along the way various lines of objection are explored.

I read chapter 2.

Sosa draws in skeptical arguments, but he doesn't take them seriously. The only answer he ends up giving the skeptic is this: if the belief is true, then we know. If it's not true, then we don't know. But hey, it's probably true, so we probably know!

Then the virtue stuff. Yes it's fruitful, but I worry about defending it using examples of actions. The aptness of an arrow shot is different than the aptness of a reflective belief.
