EPISTEMIC CONTRASTIVISM (Kontrastywizn epistemiczny)
Languages of publication
According to contrastivism in epistemology - advocated chiefly by Jonathan Schaffer - the knowledge relation is not binary (s knows that p) but ternary (s knows that p rather than q). Thus knowledge ascriptions are contrast-sensitive. The aim of this paper is to portray, investigate and assess the details of this view. In the first three sections the author focuses mainly on arguments for contrastivism. Section fourth is devoted to the contrastivist solution to the skeptical puzzle. In the last three sections the author presents several problems for contrastivism as well as three main binary explanations for contrast-sensitivity.
