Good Knowledge, Bad Knowledge

Where this chapter stands on the issue of what epistemologists call the ‘Gettier problem’ is much as Chapter 2 stood on the issue of sceptical worries. It argues for a correspondingly non-standard interpretation of Gettier cases, the kind of puzzling cases first described by Edmund Gettier (1963). This interpretation will also provide further support for the hypothesis that epistemic absolutism is false.
