Philosophia 19 (2-3):99-113 (1989)
AbstractThis paper examines naturalized epistemology's prospects for dealing with Cartesian skepticism and the traditional problem of induction. It is argued that Quine's approach fails to satisfy the skeptic who does not already embrace some version of scientific method. In addition, it is argued that Goldman's reliabilism enables one to address these issues empirically only if one rejects the view that if we are capable of confirming an empirical hypothesis, we are also capable of disconfirming it. The article ends with a negative appraisal of the role relevant alternatives play in Goldman's account, particularly with regard to second order knowledge
