Abstract

What is it to know that something is the case? What am I saying when I say, ‘I know that the temperature outside is below freezing’ or ‘I know that the money was in my pocket when I left the house’ or Now we know that the moon has a great deal of dust on its surface’ or (to my son while helping him with his arithmetic) Now, you know that six tens are sixty’ ? What sort of thing would make one of these propositions, or any other of the form ‘S knows that p’1, true? What will constitute a case of knowing that a certain proposition is true, that is, a case of propositional knowledge?
