Title: Contextualism and Intellectualism
Author: McGrath, Matthew
Keywords: epistemic positions
belief
Date: 0000
Abstract: The main goal of this paper is to show that the common ground between Jason Stanley and Keith DeRose concerning contextualism against subject-sensitive invariantism, which is assumed in the literature generally, is a false assumption. If I am right about this, then one of the main motivations for accepting contextualism over SSI is undermined. This might seem to be good news for SSI. However, other key test cases provide motivations for contextualism, even once intellectualism is abandoned. In fact, I will argue that anti-intellectualist contextualism is not merely a coherent possibility but that it has distinct advantages over SSI.
