    The foundationalism–coherentism opposition revisited: The case for complementarism (review)
    Foundations of Science 12 (4): 325-336. 2007.
    In this paper, I show the complementarity of foundationalism and coherentism with respect to any efficient system of beliefs by means of a distinction between two types of proposition drawn from an analogy with an axiomatic system. This distinction is based on the way a given proposition is acknowledged as true, either by declaration (F-proposition) or by preservation (C-proposition). Within such a perspective, i.e., epistemological complementarism, not only can one see how the usual opposition …Read more

    The general principle of epistemic closure stipulates that epistemic properties are transmissible through logical means. According to this principle, an epistemic operator, say ε, should satisfy any valid scheme of inference, such as: if ε(p entails q), then ε(p) entails ε(q). The principle of epistemic closure under known entailment (ECKE), a particular instance of epistemic closure, has received a good deal of attention since the last thirty years or so. ECKE states that: if one knows that p e…Read more

    KK-Thesis and Contextualism
    Polish Journal of Philosophy 9 (2): 19-39. 2015.
    In this paper, I defend a contextualist reading of the KK-thesis. In the first part, I present the general problem and I contrast three concepts of knowledge with respect to the KK-thesis, that all rely on a univocal interpretation of the K-predicate. In the second part, I provide a contextualist framework based upon an indexical interpretation of the K-predicate and the notion of epistemic context. I show how this framework can integrate different concepts of knowledge, and how it highlights th…Read more

  • Le Holisme Epistemologique Dans la "Critique de la Raison Pure" de Kant
    Dissertation, Universite de Montreal (Canada). 1997.
    Cette etude a pour but d'etablir que l'epistemologie developpee par Kant dans la Critique de la raison pure est holiste. Pour ce faire, nous construirons, dans la Partie I, un cadre conceptuel permettant de definir ce qui peut caracteriser un systeme holiste. La Partie II sera consacree a l'examen de la Critique de la raison pure selon ce cadre conceptuel. Enfin, apres avoir montre que les developpements epistemologiques majeurs de la premiere Critique satisfont les conditions du cadre holiste, …Read more
