    In this commentary on Rott’s paper “Stability, Strength and Sensitivity: Converting Belief into Knowledge”, the author discusses two problems of the stability theory of knowledge which are pointed out by Rott. She concludes that these problems offer no reason for rejecting the stability theory, but might be grounds for deviating from the standard AGM account of belief revision which Rott presupposes.
