John Pollock, epistemic externalism, and the problem of naturalizing justification
In this paper we deal with John Pollock’s criticism against externalism—the idea that a proper naturalistic theory of justification has to be internalist. We analyze whether his refutation really affects every form of externalism, particularly, process reliabilism. We present Pollock’s procedural theory of epistemic norms, and discuss if his arguments are effective agains process reliabilism. We claim that the reasons presented do not really put Pollock’s project in advantage.
