Ideas of Duncan Pritchard, by Text

[British, fl. 2005, University of Sterling, then Professor at the University of Edinburgh.]

2012 Epistemological Disjunctivism
Intro p.2 Epistemic externalism struggles to capture the idea of epistemic responsibility
Intro p.3 Disjunctivism says perceptual justification must be both factual and known by the agent
1.4 p.23 Metaphysical disjunctivism says normal perceptions and hallucinations are different experiences
1.6 p.36 Epistemic internalism usually says justification must be accessible by reflection
2.3 p.74 We can have evidence for seeing a zebra, but no evidence for what is entailed by that
2.3 p.76 Favouring: an entailment will give better support for the first belief than reason to deny the second
2.5 p.85 We assess error against background knowledge, but that is just what radical scepticism challenges
2.6 p.89 Maybe knowledge just needs relevant discriminations among contrasting cases
2.n2 p.101 An improbable lottery win can occur in a nearby possible world
3.2 p.114 Moore begs the question, or just offers another view, or uses 'know' wrongly [PG]
3.2 p.114 My modus ponens might be your modus tollens
3.3 p.119 Externalism is better than internalism in dealing with radical scepticism
3.5 p.126 Radical scepticism is merely raised, and is not a response to worrying evidence
