Hi Avery
I just found your snip about Hintikka from this March, I would be interested in the source where he has written that.

Generally I find your blog great, and of course I disagree sometimes ;)

thus, see you later

Thanks
Klaus

Hey Klaus,

Thanks for stopping by. I take it that you're asking about the definition of knowledge found in my post On the logic of knowing:

M, s ╞ Kiφ iff for all t ~ i s : M, t ╞ φ

I wrote the post some time ago, but I believe the above formulation is actually taken from Johan van Benthem's paper "Epistemic Logic and Epistemology: the state of their affairs", though he gets it from Hintikka. Bibliographic details allude me now, but you may wish to check out van Benthem's paper.

Best!
