PUTTING THE HORSE BEFORE THE CART: A PRAGMATIST ANALYSIS OF KNOWLEDGE
Palavras-chave:Justified true belief. Epistemic justification. A priori truth.
ResumoThe de! nition of knowledge as justfied true belief is the best we presently have. However, the canonical tripartite analysis of knowledge does not do justice to it due to a Platonic conception of a priori truth that puts the cart before the horse. Within a pragmatic approach, I argue that by doing away with a priori truth, namely by submitting truth to justi! cation, and by accordingly altering the canonical analysis of knowledge, this is a fruitful de! nition. So fruitful indeed that it renders the Gettier counterexamples vacuous, allowing positive work in epistemology and related disciplines.
