However, social facts may be found to be ‘objective’ in everyday life in a way that is hardly different from natural facts, as is the case for a car accident as compared to an earthquake. Such is generally the case for (the use of) money, the streets, cities or pollution. Ontologically, these are observerdependent facts, but they may be experienced in everyday life as facts that are the basis of objective social knowledge (see also Popper, 1972). This distinction is also relevant for the deinition of ideology as opposed to objective knowledge (Van Dijk, 1998).
Thus, Blair may assume that what he claims to be evidence and arguments as presented in his speech will sequentially change the knowledge (and opinions) of the recipients, and hence their reasons to support his motion. As we indicated before, contemporary epistemology also features a contextualist approach. Yet, such contextualism hardly provides a systematic analysis of such contexts, but rather deines as context what it cannot handle in the semantics, such as the use of vague or scalar terms (such as “large”), speaker meanings, indexicals or situationally variable epistemic criteria (see DeRose, 2009; Preyer and Peter, 2005).
Tony Blair seems to do something similar when he deines the situation in Iraq and WMDs as part of world peace. , Rosch, 1975, 1978; Rosch and Lloyd, 1978) – so that here, too, formal epistemological problems do not seem to hinder a more natural approach to knowledge as based on loosely identiied and delimited facts in the real world. Again, we see that facts appear to depend on the way we are cognitively able to construe or analyze events or situations in the world and at various levels. But if facts depend on beliefs, then it makes no sense to deine the correctness of beliefs as mental models in terms of facts because there is no independent way to deine such facts.
