on epistemology as a subdiscipline of metaphysics.

My epistemology professor asks us to write down our thoughts at the end of the lecture, mostly, I think, as an efficient way for him to take attendance. One time I remember writing something like: “it seems to me that epistemology is just the metaphysics of knowledge.”
Apparently, Gustav Bergmann has similar sentiments: “Epistemology is merely the ontology of the knowing situation.” (from his “Ontological Alternatives”)
