Exemplars of Truth

Keith Lehrer

  • Argues that knowledge requires the capacity to justify or defend the target claim of knowledge in terms of a background system
  • Offers a solution to the "problem of experience" in the theory of knowledge
  • Posits that reflection on experience converts the experience itself into an exemplar, something like a sample that becomes a vehicle or term of representation
