Abstract: Together with the thesis that one should only act based on what one knows, Stanley’s Interest-Relative Invariantism explains most of our intuitions by means of certain relevant examples. But if one posits that the truth-value of knowledge attributions is relative to the practical situation of all of the relevant agents, it is possible to explain why all our intuitions on these cases (and not just on most of them) are correct. This position helps us to explain the oddity in Moore’s paradox and the role of knowledge attributions in the justification of actions.
Keywords: invariantism, assertion, action, intuitions
