Reflective Knowledge: Apt Belief and Reflective Knowledge – Ernest Sosa

Philosophical Quarterly 61 (242):203-205 (2011)
Abstract
A review of Ernest Sosa’s book Apt Belief and Reflective Knowledge. While I think Sosa is quite right that knowledge lies on a spectrum, and that its higher but not its lower reaches require of knowers, when challenged, a strong degree of explanatory coherence (ability to understand and discursively defend the basis of their beliefs), I also point out problems with certain aspects of his account.
