Perceptual Knowledge and Well-Founded Belief

Millar A (2016) Perceptual Knowledge and Well-Founded Belief, Episteme, 13 (1), pp. 43-59.

Should a philosophical account of perceptual knowledge accord a justicatory role to sensory experiences? This discussion raises problems for an afrmative answer and sets out an alternative account on which justied belief is conceived as well- founded belief and well-foundedness is taken to depend on knowledge. A key part of the discussion draws on a conception of perceptual-recognitional abilities to account for how perception gives rise both to perceptual knowledge and to well-founded belief.
