Naturalized epistemology: is an expression by W.V. O. Quine (Quine, Willard (2004), "Epistemology Naturalized." In E. Sosa & J. Kim, Epistemology An Anthology, Malden, MA, pp. 292-300). It proposes abandoning traditional epistemology in favor of scientific procedures. The starting point for this consideration is Quine's insight from “Two Dogmas” (Quine, Willard (1994), "Two Dogmas of Empiricism. From a Logical Point of View”, Cambridge, MA pp. 20-46) according to which the distinction between analytic and synthetic sentences cannot be traced back to individual present sentences. This is the reason why theories must be considered as a whole. See also analyticity/syntheticity, epistemology.

naturalized epistemology / Quine: no prima philosophia - ultimately no distinction between describing and justifying
  Naturalized Epistemology / Quine: no "Prima Philosophia", no upstream philosophy, which is to regulate the knowledge. Actually no distinction between describing and justifying. Philosophy should confine itself to explain how we come to knowledge.
I 66
Quine: We have what is dictated to us by science and enlightened comon sense, and we have to accept it without an attempt of justification.
