Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The recent history regarding the analysis of knowledge is examined, in the context of the so-called ‘Gettier problem’. The issues that are explored include: (i) the nature of the Gettier problem itself, and the particular conception of the ‘traditional’ analysis of knowledge that it presupposes; (ii) why the Gettier problem is not amenable to a straightforward solution; (iii) some of the core motivations for rejecting the ‘analytical project’ of trying to offering an analysis of knowledge; and (iv) some recent virtue theoretic solutions that have been offered to the analytical project
