Roderick Chisholm on Acquaintance - Dictionary of Arguments
Acquaintance / Chisholm: "epistemic familiarity" ("epistemically close") - even without acquaintance, by source of information - then knowledge possible that it is one and the same, from acquaintance and from description - II 125 "e. familiarity" only in special cases sufficiently: the purely referential ones.
Reference / acquaintance / description / BrandlVsChisholm: Problem: two kinds of unitary relation - that corresponds to the problem that the user can do both, attributional or referential reference.
BrandlVsChisholm: his error lies in the equation of "knowing" of objects with a knowledge which we can acquire in a purely linguistic way.
epistemically close / Chisholm: more relationships to objects - it only appears to me - also know that .. - BrandlVs: but that s only theoretical knowledge! - II 125 sufficient only in purely referential cases.
