LAURENCE BONJOUR CAN EMPIRICAL KNOWLEDGE HAVE A FOUNDATION PDF

Foundationalism is a view about the structure of justification or knowledge. A little reflection suggests that the vast majority of the propositions we know or justifiably believe have that status only because we know or justifiably believe other propositions. So, for example, I justifiably believe that there is at least one dog in our neighborhood, because I justifiably believe that my next door neighbor has a dog; I justifiably believe that our garbage will get picked up tomorrow, because I justifiably believe that tomorrow is Tuesday and that our garbage gets picked up every Tuesday; and I justifiably believe that there is going to be at least some rain in the next week, because I justifiably believe that the forecast calls for a good deal of rain, and forecasts are almost always right when it comes to similar short-term forecasts in this area. And the dependence seems to be inferential in nature: in each case, I justifiably believe the former only because I have inferred it, or at least am readily able to infer it, from the latter. There is no standard terminology for what we shall henceforth refer to as noninferential or foundational justification knowledge.

I. CAN EMPIRICAL KNOWLEDGE HAVE A FOUNDATION

We see BonJour's main argument against basic beliefs on pp. BonJour wants to argue that the very concept of justification poses some obstacle to the idea of basic or immediately justified beliefs. His basic idea will be that if you're to be justified in holding some belief B, then you have to be justified in believing that B has features that make it likely to be true. So your justification for believing B depends on other beliefs, beliefs about the features that B has.
