justifiability

Definition of justifiability

Noun

justifiability (countable and uncountable; plural justifiabilities)

  1. The property of being justifiable.

    * 2008, Ernest Sosa, "Boghossian's Fear of Knowledge", Philosophical Studies, vol. 141, no. 3, October 14: 
    If (a) absolute epistemic facts could not exist without being justifiable (the justifiability constraint), and if (b) one would not be justified in upholding one's own epistemic system when faced with an actually advocated genuine alternative, then , in my view, (c) we are not much better off if such advocates are possible but just happen not to be actual.
