Here’s a pointer to an interesting conference entitled The Point and Purpose of Epistemic Evaluation. This conference explores one idea in the methodology of epistemology. The idea is that, “the point(s) and purpose(s) of epistemic evaluation ought to significantly constrain and inform substantive accounts of knowledge and knowledge-related phenomena.”
The conference description mentions Craig’s Knowledge and the State of Nature as an example of instantiating this idea. I also think Alston’s Beyond Justification is an example of this approach.
