Pragmatic encroachment and having reasons

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Back in the days when I would give talks defending contextualism, I would often hear the following objection: Your view has the crazy result that knowledge can come and go very easily and for seemingly irrelevant reasons. You can lose your knowledge even though your evidence remains the same, there are no safety or sensitivity changes, etc.
