What is the relation between our beliefs or thoughts in general and the perceptual experience of the world that gives rise to those beliefs. Donald Davidson is taken to have a well-known answer to this question that runs as follows: while our beliefs are at least in part, caused by our experience, such experience does not thereby count as providing a rational ground for those beliefs; our beliefs are evidently ground in other belief but not in the experience that gives rise to them.
