Internalism
A person always has access to or can be aware of why (the reasons) he believes in something
One’s internal (mental) states are important justifiers of a belief
An internal sense of conformity to responsibility and duty towards truth is the justification for one’s belief
Externalism
It is not the case that a person always has access to or can be aware of the reasons or justifications for his belief
There are things other than mental states that act as justifiers of belief
Belief is justified, not by any sense of duty, but by the strength of evidential support and objectivity.
