Cross-Cultural Gettier

The multi-authored article "Gettier Across Cultures", just published "early view" in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, has called my attention. Here's its abstract: "In this article, we present evidence that in four different cultural groups that speak quite different languages (Brazil, India, Japan, and the USA) there are cases of justified true beliefs that are not judged to be cases of knowledge. We hypothesize that this intuitive judgment, which we call “the Gettier intuition,” may be a reflection of an underlying innate and universal core folk epistemology, and we highlight the philosophical significance of its universality."
