This chapter defines intrinsic assessability and discusses non-arbitrary assessability. An account of intrinsic assessability is expected to yield an account of knowledge which will be helpful to the analysis of knowledge. Someone who knows something must be right. That is what makes knowledge worth having and experts worth consulting. And that deceptively simple truth is what every analysis of knowledge aims to capture. Intrinsic assessability requires that an appropriate non-accidentally response must be non-accidentally right for the right sort of reason. This chapter includes discussion on: the basic requirements of intrinsic assessability; an analysis of knowledge; non-accidental correctness; epistemological internalism; the right sort of reason; and a structure that non-arbitrary assessability requires.
