this paper examines a series of recent objections to veritistic epistemology that aim to show that it cannot account for the nature and value of understanding. section 1 formulates the central tenets of veritistic epistemology and makes a few more preliminary remarks. sections 2 and 3 discuss objections that attempt to show that cognitive states implicated in understanding have a sui generis nature which makes the veritistic model of evaluation inapplicable to them. sections 4 and 5 examine objections that aim to show that there are aspects of understanding which are epistemically valuable, whose value cannot be explained in veritistic terms. section 6 sums up results of the discussion: none of the objections discussed succeeds in revealing any explanatory deficit of veritism with respect to the nature and value of understanding.
