This is an strange quantity. in the course of his sessions of research with Ed­ mund Husserl - first from I924 1. zero I926, then from I93I to I932 - Dorion Cairns had turn into imnlensely inspired with the stri­ king philosophical caliber of Husserl's conversations together with his scholars and colleagues. now not not like his day-by-day writing (five to 6 hours an afternoon used to be no longer unusual, as Husserl studies herein, the character of which was once a continuing looking, reassessing, modi­ fying, advancing or even rejecting of former views), Husserl's conversations, particularly evidenced from Cairns's checklist, have been impressive for his or her intensity and probing personality. due to this, and thanks to the importaIlt mild they threw on Husserl's written and released works, Cairns had early resolved to set down in writing, as safely as attainable, the main points of those conversations. mostly triggered by way of the questions and issues of his scholars, together with Cairns, the current Conversations (from the second one interval, I93I-I932, aside from the preliminary dialog) offer an important, exciting, and constantly attention-grabbing perception into either the problems that have been popular to Husserl at the moment, and how he had come to view the systematic and old placement of his personal prior reports. Cairns had usually insisted - mostly in his amazing lec­ 1 tures on the Graduate school of the recent university - that achieving a good and actual view of Husserl's drastically wealthy and intricate 1 Cairns's lectures among 1956 and 1964 are in particular important.

Sample text

Isn’t Sosa’s own account a sensitivity account? And isn’t it precisely in being a sensitivity account that it is able to deliver those advantages? Sosa’s explanation for why (E4) can seem not to be known clearly employs the first of SCA’s two claims: 1 S’s belief that p is insensitive. He combines this with the following in his explanation: (b) Safety is a necessary condition for knowledge. (c) Because it is the contrapositive of sensitivity, we easily confuse safety with sensitivity. In fact, we can construe Sosa’s account as an indirect sensitivity account, which uses (b)–(c) as its explanation for why (2) holds: it’s because of (b)–(c) that we so often think that insensitive beliefs are not knowledge.

If our intuitions about such cases are correct, the cases are counterexamples to the theories of knowledge on which direct sensitivity accounts are based, since they show that (a) is false. But such cases also provide exceptions to the generalization (2), utilized by even indirect sensitivity accounts, for about such cases we are not inclined to judge that the subject doesn’t know, despite the apparent insensitivity of the subject’s belief. Of course, I’ve formulated (2) so that it is perfectly compatible with there being exceptions to the tendency it posits.

He has had illuminating and influential things to say about virtually every topic in epistemology and I have learned much from his writings. It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I contribute to this collection of essays on his work. 1 My comments concern two central topics in his work – the structure of knowledge, and the nature of the epistemic mind–world connection. The Structure of Knowledge For Sosa, there are two kinds of knowledge – animal knowledge (cognitio) and reflective knowledge (scientia).
