Biology and Gettier's Paradox

Gonzalo Munévar
2019 Studia Humana  
Gettier's Paradox is considered a most critical problem for the presumably obvious philosophical view that knowledge is justified true belief.  ...  I will suggest that an approach that pays attention to biology is more likely to succeed in developing a proper account of our cognitive abilities. Thus, Gettier's paradox becomes a mere curiosity.  ...  For analytic philosophers, rationality tends to be defined in terms of consistency, implication, logical truth, etc., of sentences or propositions.  ...

On common knowledge in conversation

Piotr Labenz
2012 Semiotica: Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies  
This working paper aims towards a coherent account of the sort of common knowledge that is necessary for making felicitous utterances in a conversation.  ...  However, as Clark and Marshall [10] observed, that denition leads to a paradox; in Section 2 I discuss the possibilities of avoiding it.  ...  Knowledge is a very strong notion, not only in view of the usual epistemological scepticism, but in particular of the logical omniscience paradox.  ...

Distinction, the linchpin of international humanitarian law, requires that parties to a conflict conduct their operations in a manner that distinguishes between combatants and civilians, as well as between  ...  Paradoxically, the technological edge that advanced militaries enjoy over their enemies may present problems in terms of ensuring compliance with the distinction principle, particularly at the tactical  ...  More than the immediate battlefield implications of such methods and means of warfare must be considered.

D. Hölscher
2018 South African Journal of Higher Education  
I conclude that a democratic ethics of care can be employed to further the ends of social justice against the odds of a neoliberal learning context.  ...  Using the lenses of Joan Tronto's democratic ethics of care and Nancy Fraser's work on social justice, I also reflect on my own practices as a social work lecturer in a university that has a high percentage  ...  While the seriousness of these violations calls for responses on a number of levels, my focus here is on their implications for the lecturer-student interface.  ...
