|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._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

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.
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._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
