This introduction gives a summary of the content of the special issue Hinge Epistemology, grouping the papers in three sections: (1) more exegetical accounts of Wittgenstein’s notion of hinge certainties and their bearing on a theory of justification and knowledge as well as on the topic of external world scepticism; (2) papers critical of the very notion of hinge certainty; and (3) papers that apply the notion to various areas of epistemology and compare Wittgenstein’s views to those of other philosophers.
