Reliabilism and Contemporary Epistemology

Alvin I. Goldman

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses two distinct topics in social epistemology: epistemological relativism and peer disagreement. It characterizes epistemological relativism by treating it as a combination of three theses. It then proposes a novel version of relativism that may be appealing to firm objectivists. Next, it looks at the relativization proposal, which is supported by the notion of iterative justification. The chapter also gives provisional suggestions for applying these ideas to the peer disagreement problem.

Keywords:   epistemological relativism, peer disagreement, relativization proposal, iterative justification
