(p.175) 7 Williamson on Knowledge and Evidence
Reliabilism and Contemporary Epistemology

Alvin I. Goldman

Oxford University Press

This chapter serves as a critical examination of Williamson's theories of knowledge and evidence. It argues that certain details of the theory are less successful than those of similar theories that have been previously defended. It notes that Williamson may have made a mistake in downplaying the process element in process reliabilism (PR). The chapter also discusses evidence, and shows that Williamson holds that a person's body of evidence is the only thing he/she knows.

Keywords:   theories of knowledge and evidence, Williamson, process element, process reliabilism, evidence, body of evidence
