Strategic Reliabilism? and the Replacement Thesis in Epistemology

ABSTRACT: In their recent book, Epistemology and the Psychology of Human Judgment, M. Bishop and J D. Trout have challenged Standard Analytic Epistemology (SAE) in all its guises and have endorsed aversion of the "replacement thesis "--proponents of which aim at replacing the standard questions of SAE with psychological questions. In this article I argue that Bishop and Trout offer an incomplete epistemology that, as formulated, cannot address many of the core issues that motivate interest in epistemological questions to begin with, and so is not a fit replacement. RÉSUMÉ: Dans leur ouvrage récent, Epistemology and the Psychology of Human Judgment, M. Bishop et J D. Trout contestent toutes les formes du Standard Analytic Epistemology (SAE) et, pourtant, soutiennent une version de la «thèse du remplacement». Cette nouvelle version de la thèse de remplacement vise à remplacer les questions du SAE avec les questions psychologiques. Dans mon texte, je dispute les conclusions de Bishop et Trout. Je démontre que leur épistémologie est incomplète et ne peut répondre aux questions épistémologiques fondamentales.
