The Essential Tie Between Knowing and Believing: A Causal Account of Knowledge and Epistemic Reasons
Edwin Mellen Press (2011)
This book offers a causal-explanatory account of knowledge as true belief caused by the worldly state of affairs that explains its existence. It also defends a contextual account of epistemic reasons, arguing that both foundationalism and coherentism cannot provide a satisfactory account of such reasons. Skeptical arguments are answered against a historical background from Plato to the present day.
