Information-based epistemology maintains that ‘being informed’ is an independent cognitive state that cannot be reduced to knowledge or to belief, and the modal logic KTB has been proposed as a model. But what distinguishes the KTB analysis of ‘being informed’, the Brouwersche schema (B), is precisely its downfall, for no logic of information should include (B). Yet, without (B), there is little hope for an independent model logic of ‘being informed’ and subsequently little reason to presume that ‘being informed’ is a novel cognitive state.
