    Duncan Pritchard offers an original defence of epistemological disjunctivism. This is an account of perceptual knowledge which contends that such knowledge is paradigmatically constituted by a true belief that enjoys rational support which is both factive and reflectively accessible to the agent. Such an account poses a radical challenge to contemporary epistemology, since according to standard views in epistemology it is simply incoherent. Pritchard shows thatepistemological disjunctivism is both theoretically viable (i.e., that it does not succumb to the problems that it appears to face), and an account of perceptual knowledge which we would want to endorse if it were available on account of its tremendous theoretical potential. He argues thatepistemological disjunctivism offers a way through the impasse between epistemic externalism and internalism, and also provides the foundation for a distinctive response to the problem of radical scepticism.
