Is Knowledge Justified True Beilief?


Been awhile since we’ve posted, but I’ve been enjoying the heck out my course of epistemology, so I might as well share some of that love.

So what is knowledge? Well that’s a open question, but for the better part of the last 3 millennia one suggestion has been offered up. Possibly starting with Plato’s Theaetetus we’ve had the idea of Knowledge being justified true belief. The Idea looks like this.

  1. If p is true,
  2. You believe that p is true,
  3. and you are justified in believing p

then you know p.

Now there are all kinds of problem you might have with this definition of knowledge, but I’d like to see if anyone has thoughts, or wants to discuss the topic. If you do write a comment down below!
