PROCESS RELIABILISM, PRIME NUMBERS AND THE GENERALITY PROBLEM (pages 231-236)

Frederik J. ANDERSEN, Klemens KAPPEL

ABSTRACT: This paper aims to show that Selim Berker’s widely discussed prime number case is merely an instance of the well-known generality problem for process reliabilism and thus arguably not as interesting a case as one might have thought. Initially, Berker’s case is introduced and interpreted. Then the most recent response to the case from the literature is presented. Eventually, it is argued that Berker’s case is nothing but a straightforward consequence of the generality problem, i.e., the problematic aspect of the case for process reliabilism (if any) is already captured by the generality problem.
