In Hinge Epistemology, eminent epistemologists investigate Wittgenstein's concept of basic certainty or 'hinge certainty'. The volume begins by examining the salient features of 'hinges': Are they propositions that enjoy a special kind of non-evidential justification? Are they objects of knowledge or ways of acting mistaken for known propositions? Various attempts are then made to integrate hinges in the development of a viable epistemology: Can they shed light on the conditions of satisfaction for knowledge and justification? Do they offer a solution to scepticism? Finally, the application of hinges is explored in such areas as common knowledge and intellectual loyalty. The volume attests to the importance of hinge certainty and Wittgenstein's On Certainty for mainstream epistemology.

In Extended Rationality: A Hinge Epistemology (2015) Annalisa Coliva develops a sophisticated tightly-argued account of knowledge and rationality that would allow us to by-pass some well-known sceptical challenges, in particular, those focusing on the perceptual justification of knowledge or

1 Hinge Epistemology: Where the Wild Things are A number of philosophers, among whom Husserl, Scheler, Ortega y Gasset and Wittgenstein, have argued that there are primitive certainties that stand at the limits of the epistemic domain of our ordinary beliefs and knowledge ( Mulligan 2006
