6 The recent development of justification logic can be found in a series of work by Artemov (1995, 2001, 2006, 2008), Artemov and Nogina (2005), and Fitting (2005). The initial justification logic system, namely, the Logic of Proofs (LP), was firstly introduced in Artemov (1995); a more general approach to common knowledge based on justified knowledge can be found in Artemov (2006). Fitting (2005) firstly provides epistemic semantics and established completeness for LP. 5 A Defense of the Knowledge Account of Assertion 39 of knowledge?

First of all, as we have just noted, on the standard Kripke models for epistemic logic, all operators K, B, and A are universal in that Kφ/Bφ/ Aφ is true in a state s only if φ is true in all states accessible from s. The difference at the issue merely lies in the proposed accessibility relation, especially the acceptance of reflexivity for K; while a rejection of reflexivity for B. Now, if we accept the truth account, we must accept the standard semantic rule for A: Aφ is true in a state s only if φ is true in all states accessible from s, with a further specification of the conditions for the required accessibility relation.

A F is G” and “not every F is not G”) does not possess the matching Licensing capacity. This discrepancy cannot be explained away by claiming that a file card is only introduced via linguistic acts that contain an explicit device of existential quantification. That response begs the question; it is neither an argument nor an explanation of the phenomena, but merely a restatement of the view that indefinites, but not other truth-conditionally equivalent expressions, provide the optimal, most perspicuous way of signaling a new object under discussion.
