Gettier’s theory of knowledge attempts to provide sufficient and necessary conditions under which a person’s knowledge is justified. The theory suggests that a person cannot have a justified true belief and fail to have knowledge. For example, subject K knows that proposition Q is true if and only if: Q is true; K believes that Q is true; K is justified in believing that Q is true.
