Anti-luminosity: Four unsuccessful strategies

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 87 (4):659-673 (2009)

Abstract

In Knowledge and Its Limits Timothy Williamson argues against the luminosity of phenomenal states in general by way of arguing against the luminosity of feeling cold, that is, against the view that if one feels cold, one is at least in a position to know that one does. In this paper I consider four strategies that emerge from his discussion, and argue that none succeeds.
