Determining knowledge happens by indexically attuned
justification. One may also say that knowledge comes
without justification if standards for knowledge are
measured by fancy requirements. A lower setting of scores
brings justification back. Epistemic responsibility requires
attuning to context. Structures of epistemic justification are
extended from these resting on exceptionless general
rules to the ones involving generalities with exceptions and
further to those proceeding from particular contextual
cases. How can justification in the context really work?
Discussion involves the last two manners of how to
systematize the structure of justification. The first of these
involves general patterns and thus normative authority of
the general and the second builds on particular contexts.
The structure of justification proposed by this last one
complies with accommodation requirements for a realistic
account of knowledge.
