XIII —HYPER-RELIABILITY AND APRIORITY
I argue that beliefs that are true whenever held—like Lexist, I am thinking about myself, and (in an object-dependent framework) Jack = Jack— needn't on that account be a priori. It does however seem possible to remove the existential commitment from the last example, to get a belief that is knowable a priori. I discuss some difficulties concerning how to do that.
