    Thought insertion and immunity to error through misidentification
    Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 9 (1): 27-34. 2002.

It exploits these ideas to address major problems in epistemology, such as the nature of perceptual justifications, external world skepticism, epistemic relativism, the epistemic status of basic log…Read more
