Is Klein an infinitist about doxastic justification?

Philosophical Studies 134 (1):19 - 24 (2007)
This paper is a response to Peter Klein's "Human Knowledge and the Infinite Progress of Reasoning" . After briefly discussing what Klein says about the requirement, for doxastic justification, that a belief be formed in the right way, I'll make the following three points: Klein's solution to the regress problem isn't an infinitist solution, Klein's position on doxastic justification faces a troubling dilemma, and Klein's objection to foundationalism fails
