Review of Jessica Brown, Fallibilism: Evidence and Knowledge

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract / Description of output

In 1988, Stewart Cohen could write that 'The acceptance of fallibilism in epistemology is virtually universal' (1988: 91). Thirty years on, and things look decidedly different. Part of the reason for the shift is David Lewis's 'Elusive Knowledge' (1996), which suggested that epistemologists can avoid a choice between fallibilism and scepticism, though at the cost of accepting contextualism about knowledge attributions.
