This chapter sketches a general account of what counts as knowledge, against which background the discussion of arithmetical knowledge in the book will (hopefully) seem particularly plausible. It proposes a subject: A knows that p just in case p would be a good explanation of A's believing p to someone not acquainted with A's specific situation (an ‘outsider’).

Keywords:   knowledge, explanation, explanationism, outsider, belief
