Venue: DSC, V. Azzo Gardino 23, Sala Rossa

Discussion leader: Delia Belleri

 

A useful introduction is: Rysiew, P. (2006). ‘Epistemic Contextualism’, Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy, (ed.) E. Zalta, http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/contextualism-epistemology/.[A very useful and comprehensive overview of the current literature on contextualism in epistemology].

For the enthusiasts: Lewis, D. (1996). ‘Elusive Knowledge’, Australasian Journal of Philosophy 74, 549-67 (in the DeRose and Warfield collection too, ch. 12). [The developed statement of Lewis’s contextualist response to the problem of scepticism].

Neta, R. (2003). ‘Contextualism and the Problem of the External World’, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 63, 1-31. [Offers a contextualist response to the problem of scepticism which makes appeal to a contextualist account of evidence].
