AbstractEleven main components of my proposal are as follows: 1. There are infinitely many degrees of truth of propositions. 2. There can be infinitely many degrees of existence of [the state of affairs consisting in] someone's believing something. 3. Knowledge is nothing else but true belief. 4. Justification or warrant matters, since maximizing warrant is our only way of maximizing true belief. 5. Warrant is relative, which means that a belief is warranted whenever it is warranted by something or other. 6. A belief can be warranted by nothing but other beliefs of the same subject. 7. Every belief, up to a point at least, is to be warranted by other beliefs. 8. Every warranting relation is inferential in character. 9. A chain of warranting relations may go on indefinitely. 10. An inference rule can be warranted by beliefs which may in turn be warranted through a process involving the operation of the rule at issue. 11. The world is epistemically optimal.
