Description: What are the sources of knowledge? Can perception, memory, consciousness and reason or reasoning be trusted? Can we know anything? Scepticism. Might we be stuck in the Matrix? How would we ever know? What is knowledge? How is it related to mere belief and truth? Contextualism. What is a justification of a claim to knowledge, and how can justifications be justified? Does this lead to an endless regress of justification? What must the structure of knowledge be if there is to be no infinite regress?
