Value and Context

Alan Thomas (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter argues that contextualism should be adopted as the best epistemological theory on the grounds that it represents the most satisfactory response to philosophical scepticism. It sets out distinctive advantages that contextualism has over alternative models of knowledge. It also characterizes the key elements in a contextual model of justification.

Keywords:   contextualism, philosophical scepticism, coherentism, knowledge, moral pragmatism
