Knowledge last (if at all) epistemology

The hot thing in epistemology these days is "knowledge first" epistemology. What I think about epistemology and knowledge is best summed up as: "knowledge last (if at all)". I don't know of anything philosophically interesting, besides others facts about what one knows, that is explained by facts about what one knows—as opposed to by facts about what one believes, what one is justified in, what is true, what one understands, etc. Facts about knowledge come last in the order of explanation, if at all. But I'm not an epistemologist—just a formal epistemologist—so nobody should care much about what I think about epistemology.
