Abstract

Two concepts of the internal should be distinguished in the current epistemic internalism/externalism debate: (1) the internal in an introspective sense as what is accessible by introspection and (2) the internal in a biological sense as what is inside the organism’s nervous system. When “internal” is meant in the introspective sense, Goldman’s process reliabilism is externalist, but when “internal” is taken in the biological sense, Goldman’s process reliabilism is internalist. Goldman as a naturalist prefers “internal” in the biological sense, but the concept is unsuitable for presenting the current epistemic internalism/externalism controversy. If one understands “internal” in the introspective sense, Goldman’s reliabilism is strongly externalist.
