Knowledge / Evans: it is not sufficient that a true belief is causally dependent on the facts that make them true - ((s) additional identification needed?) - Evans: Remembering is therefore no way to have knowledge of a subject such that the question of the identity of that object remains open. - Therefore there is no gap between the knowledge that someone saw a burning tree and the knowledge that it was the person herself who saw it.
