Lackey On Epistemic Credit

Jennifer Lackey (Northern Illinois) has a very interesting paper, a draft of which is available here, in which she makes a good case for rejecting the widely held thesis that knowledge is always of credit to the agent. If this is right, then this has obvious implications for the debate about epistemic value, in that such credit would naturally be thought to be itself valuable, and therefore as conferring some value on knowing.
