Summary/Abstract: After presenting the newest interpretation of classical analysis of knowledge, this paper treats the consequences of Gettier’s counterexamples for our contemporary understanding of the nature of knowledge. Critical review of some conservative and nonconservative re-formulations of knowledge analysis follows, using original examples and arguments. This enables the author to argue for a naturalistic view of knowledge without excluding pragmatic criteria for its recognition and/or confi rmation. In the debate between externalism and internalism, the side of the former is being taken, and a functionalist approach to knowledge is being presented and defended briefly.
