Knowledge/Stroud: science and everyday life have the same standards for knowledge - True belief is still no knowledge. - Knowledge/Stroud thesis: we can know how things appear to us. - (Does not help against Descartes' skepticism) - Descartes: these are his "ideas". - Trying to get behind it, only leads to further representations.
There is no "real knowledge" in contrast to knowledge.
Knowledge/Stroud: I cannot be described as someone who knows that John will not get hit by a meteorite. - But when John turns up it is right to say I knew he was coming. -> Assertibility.
Skepticism/knowledge/Stroud: deep problem: if we realize that our concept of knowledge or of truth leads us to skepticism, we feel that it is incorrect. - Depth: it is not just about knowledge, but about our practice and reflection. (Self-knowledge).
Skepticism/Detective Example/crime case/Stroud: shows that it is not about greater security. - (As with MooreVsHume) - There is no competing hypothesis. - Rather, it shows a lack (incomplete list). - No misuse of the word "knowledge". - Skepticism: does not only consider documents (like the detective) but also questions reasons.
Wrong: Because I know that the butler was the perpetrator, I know that the list is complete. (analoge to Moore's hands).
Knowledge/belief/Stroud: difference: true belief can be random, then the fact of belief is not an explanation for knowledge, no theory of knowledge.
