Abstract

NeilSinhababu and I presented Backward Clock,an original counterexample to Robert Nozick’s truth-tracking analysis ofpropositional knowledge In theirlatest defence of the truth-tracking theories, “Methods Matter: Beating the BackwardClock,” Fred Adams, John A. Barker and Murray Clarke try again defend Nozick’s and FredDretske’s early analysis of propositional knowledge against Backward Clock. They allege failure oftruth-adherence, mistakes on my part about methods and appeal to charity,‘equivocation’, reliable methods and unfair internalism. I argue that theseobjections all fail. They are still stuck with the fact that thetracking theories fall to Backward Clock,an even more useful test case for other analyses of knowledge than might havefirst appeared.
