This chapter provides two definitions of “evidence”. The first is in terms of reliable indicatorship, and the second is in terms of strengthening justification. The discussion also notes the responses of R. Feldman and E. Conee to these definitions. The challenges posed to the viability of (pure) internalist evidentialism are included.

Keywords: evidence; reliable indicatorship; strong justification; R. Feldman; E. Conee; internalist evidentialism
