A Reassessment of Our Task Pertaining to the Logocentric Predicament

Our epistemic principles are finite in number; like the inhabitants of a small hamlet, they cannot take in each other’s epistemic laundry more than a few times without creating a circle. Faced with this problem we cannot simply suspend belief, for this would mean suspending all beliefs, and that is not only practically unfeasible but also self-defeating.

— Timothy McGrew and Lydia McGrew, Internalism and Epistemology: The Architecture of Reason, p. 126
