This chapter motivates the search for a viable tracking account of knowledge by discussing the value of knowledge and the many domains in which tracking appears to be the key part of knowledge. It is argued that the function of knowledge is the maintenance of true belief through time and changing circumstances. This explains why knowledge is power, and that justification for this is not necessary.

Keywords:   externalism, internalism, tracking, animals, testimony, science, experiment, knowledge, evidence, justification
