Get Ready for Gettier

At 10:45am on Monday, I will be blowing minds in the Emerging Topics track at CAST 2012. The famous “Gettier Cases” challenged the millenia-old contention that knowledge is precisely justified, true, belief. These cases were transformative in the field of analytic philosophy, and I believe inserting the intellectual rigor of analytic philosophy into software testing will be similarly transformative.

I can personally vouch that the two times I have given this talk to coworkers, the follow-up is passionate and vehement.

Don’t miss it.

But whether or not you make it to the talk, you might want to read Gettier’s famous paper (PDF) and see if the analytic philosophy bug bites you.
