How to Be Sure: Sensory Exploration and Empirical Certainty


  • I have delivered this paper to a number of audiences, and discussion has been enormously useful. I am indebted to the following for particularly full discussion or for penetrating questions (which they may well not remember) that made me understand my topic better: Mark Crimmins, Richard Feldman, Matt Fulkerson, Jennifer Nagel, Calvin Normore, Howard Nye, John Perry, Gurpreet Rattan, Susanna Siegel, Barry Smith, and Jonathan Weisberg. An anonymous referee’s comments were invaluable in ridding the paper of residual confusion.
