Dois exorcismos para afastar o novo gênio maligno
Keywords:New evil demon, process reliabilism, indexical reliabilism, nomal-conditions reliabilism
Our main aim in this paper is to develop two solutions or exorcisms to ward off the new evil demon problem against epistemic reliabilism. The first solution is designated as “indexical reliabilism” and the second as “normal-conditions reliabilism”. We will argue that the second solution is more plausible than the first. We will also argue that this second solution, if properly developed, can respond well to several recent objections. Therefore, reliabilism has good ways of dealing with the new evil demon problem.
