Reliabilism and Contemporary Epistemology

Alvin I. Goldman

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the ability to solve long-standing epistemological problems. It introduces the concept of foundationalism, which is a classical approach to the structure of justification. It shows that foundationalism conceives of a layer of justified beliefs that can be found at the bottom of an inferential hierarchy. The chapter also compares process reliabilism and immediate justification.

Keywords:   immediate justification, epistemological problems, foundationalism, structure of justification, inferential hierarchy, justified beliefs, process reliabilism
