CSMN Colloquium: John Hyman

John Hyman (Oxford)

Knowledge and Belief

I argue that belief should be defined in terms of knowledge, instead of the other way around. But I reject the ‘knowledge first’ approach to epistemology. I defend the ‘nothing first’ approach, i.e. there isn’t anything that comes first, because the hierarchical conception of philosophical analysis is wrong.
