If you have a question about this talk, please contact Stephen John.

I am going to raise some questions about Williamson’s arguments for the hypothesis that the concept of knowledge can’t be analysed into more basic concepts. In response to his proposal that knowing is the most general factive stative attitude I distinguish between a number of different approaches to the question ‘what is knowledge?’ and make a case for what I call a ‘sources’ approach. (Suggested reading: Williamson, Knowledge and its Limits, chapter 1.)
