Internalists are typically careful to design their views to escape the famous dilemma for foundationalism posed by Wilfrid Sellars. Because the Sellarsian dilemma is similar in ways to the dilemma proposed in Chapter 1, this might make such internalists think that their views can escape this dilemma as well. This chapter argues that even those most sensitive to the Sellarsian dilemma — Richard Fumerton, Timothy McGrew, Laurence BonJour, and Evan Fales — fail to escape the dilemma proposed in Chapter 1.
