Epistemic contextualism in itself does not entail any stance on closure, but most contextualists have been friendly to both some form of closure of knowledge and closure of justification. This chapter describes the well-known skeptical paradox that contextualists have devoted most efforts to solving. It discusses the problem of risk accrual, both as it applies to a multi-and single-premise form of closure, concluding with a discussion of a defeat-related problem. The standard formulations of closure would not do for the purposes of the contextualist: even if single-premise closure (SPC) and multi-premise closure (MPC) are true in the context, the contextualist wants them to be true in all contexts. Even those who deny that one can know that one's ticket will lose the lottery in advance of hearing the result of the draw and just based on the odds will face a similar, though perhaps slightly less poignant, problem when it comes to MPC.
