In this paper I argue that ascriptions of knowledge are context-sensitive. According to this view, the truth-value of a knowledge ascription will depend on facts about the speakers and hearers of the context in which the ascription is made. A consequence of this view is that a speaker in one context may truly assert that a subject knows p at time T, while another speaker in a different context truly denies that that same subject knows p at T. I then argue that this view can go a long way toward resolving the skeptical deductive closure paradox.
