(p.29) 1 What Is Justified Belief?
Reliabilism and Contemporary Epistemology

Alvin I. Goldman

Oxford University Press

This chapter studies the original formulation of process reliabilism, which is normally used for justification. It tries to show that the process that leads to the formation or retention of a belief is important to its justificational status, or J-status. The chapter identifies the properties of the belief-causing processes that are responsible for the J-statuses of the output beliefs. The chapter also addresses issues of proper formulation that can help keep the reliability-style conditions from being either too strong or too weak.

Keywords:   process reliabilism, original formulation, justificational status, belief-causing process, output beliefs, reliability-style conditions, proper formulation
