As a preparation, it outlines a doxastic conception suitable to explicate this claim and explains how to analyse dispositions within this conception. Since an observable p has the disposition to look as if p, this analysis generalizes to the central claim which is then argued to be at the bottom of coherentism. Thus, the defense of the claim supports coherentism as opposed to foundationalism and at the same time provides an answer to skepticism about the external world.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, New Series 98 (1998), 1, pp. 22-40</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/40"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/3485/1/How_to_Understand_the_Foundations.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-23T13:46:31Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/"/> <dcterms:issued>1998</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/3485/1/How_to_Understand_the_Foundations.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/3485"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:title>How to understand the foundations of empirical belief in a coherentist way</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
