Abstract

In this paper, I present some of the basic questions of Epistemology and try to come to some answers.

My central claim, all along this paper, is that what is real is real even without being known; what is known is known even without being justified; what is true is true even without being justified; what is justified is justified only with the best reasons at the moment; what is founded is founded only if it agrees with what is real.

Keywords: Epistemology, reality, knowledge, language, truth, justification, foundation
