Yes, Safety Is In Danger, Chad Marxen

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

In an essay recently published in this journal (“Is Safety in Danger?”), Fernando Broncano Berrocal defends the safety condition on knowledge from a counterexample proposed by Tomas Bogardus (2012). In this paper, we will define the safety condition, briefly explain the proposed counterexample, and outline Broncano-Berrocal’s defense of the safety condition. We will then raise four objections to Broncano-Berrocal’s defense, four implausible implications of his central claim. In the end, we conclude that Broncano-Berrocal’s defense of the safety condition is unsuccessful, and that the safety condition on knowledge should be rejected.
