Knowledge (re-dated)
December 18, 2008, 3:05 pm
Filed under: Philosophy

In truth, we have all done some knowing before we began to reflect philosophically upon what it means to know or what counts as knowledge. In this way, if our epistemology cannot account for what we know that we know, there is something wrong with our epistemology. This is true even as we acknowledge that philosophical reflection upon knowledge may lead us to think differently about what counts as knowledge or what it means to have knowledge. Even with this in view, we are justified in rejecting any epistemology that cannot account for what we know that we know.

It seems to me that any philosophy which denies this is fundamentally dishonest.
