It seems like a good day for my first post to the blog.
A number of readers might be interested in this paper, which reports new experimental findings on laypeople's take on Gettier cases. Comments welcome. Title and abstract:
A conspicuous art: putting Gettier to the test
Professional philosophers say it’s obvious that a Gettier subject does not know. But experimental philosophers and psychologists have argued that laypeople and non-Westerners view Gettier subjects very differently, based on experiments where they ascribe knowledge to Gettier subjects at statistically significant rates. I argue that when effectively probed, laypeople and non-Westerners unambiguously agree that Gettier subjects do not know.
Interested parties will also want to check out this recent paper, if they haven't already. (You really should have already.)
