(Original title: Spory o charakter zdôvodnenia v súčasnej analytickej epistemológii)
Filozofia, 68 (2013), 6, 517-522.
Type of work: Young Philosophers
Publication language: Slovak

The controversy between internalists and externalists concerning the approach to justification is among central issues in contemporary analytic epistemology. In its first part, the paper briefly surveys the main points of controversy. In its second part, the author defends the view that internalist and externalist approaches are components of two different epistemological projects. If the presented view is true, then the controversy between internalism and externalism is in fact meaningless, because it does not concern the same subject.
