Internalism and Externalism in Semantics and Epistemology by Sanford C. Goldberg
Book DescriptionTo what extent are meaning, on the one hand, and knowledge, on the other, determined by aspects of the 'outside world'? Internalism and Externalism in Semantics and Epistemology presents twelve specially written essays exploring these debates in metaphysics and epistemology and the connections between them. In so doing, it examines how issues connected with the nature of mind and language bear on issues about the nature of knowledge and justification (and vice versa). Topics discussed include the compatibility of semantic externalism and epistemic internalism, the variety of internalist and externalist positions (both semantic and epistemic), semantic externalism's implications for the epistemology of reasoning and reflection, and the possibility of arguments from the theory of mental content to the theory of epistemic justification (and vice versa).

Assertion, Hardback (February 2015)
Sanford C. Goldberg presents a novel account of the speech act of assertion. He argues that this type of speech act is answerable to an epistemic, context-sensitive norm. On this basis he shows the philosophical importance of assertion for key debates in philosophy of language and mind, epistemology, and ethics.
Relying on Others, Paperback (September 2012)» View all books by Sanford C. Goldberg
Sanford Goldberg examines the role that others play in our attempts to acquire knowledge of the world: through what they say ('testimonial knowledge') or through their salient silences. He argues that this sort of knowledge poses a challenge to some cherished "individualistic" assumptions in traditional theories of knowledge.
