For a), theories such as the causal theory of knowledge or reliability theories have been developed. See also verification, examination, verification, proofs, externalism.|

I/you-relations/Brandom/Esfeld: show in contrast to relativistic I-We-relationships that the community as a whole can be wrong - I-We: myth of the given - I-Thou: replaces representationalism by inferentialism - no enforcement of consensus, community has no privileged status

Justification/belief/Esfeld: justification only by other beliefs because these have statement form - but circumstances are not sufficient, but inferential practices are - ultimately coherence theory - social holism: beliefs are isolated from the world, only them, nothing in the world is conceptually (VsMcDowell) but beliefs are bound to the world by not being epistemic self-sufficient - (epistemically self-contained: Content v.belief state n. ontological dependent on physical texture)_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
