11. Knowledge Aims / B. Certain Knowledge / 4. Fallibilism
Indefeasibility does not imply infallibility
13. Knowledge Criteria / A. Justification Problems / 1. Justification / c. Defeasibility
Can a defeater itself be defeated?
Simple reliabilism can't cope with defeaters of reliably produced beliefs
Defeasibility theory needs to exclude defeaters which are true but misleading
You can 'rebut' previous beliefs, 'undercut' the power of evidence, or 'reason-defeat' the truth
Knowledge requires that there are no facts which would defeat its justification
