Evidentialism is a theory of knowledge or epistemology that deals with epistemic justification. According to traditional epistemology a true belief is justified, or becomes a Justified True Belief when the evidence demonstrates it. In other words a true belief in something is not enough, there must be warrant or justification for it.
