Abstract
The artificial structure is a kind of specifications, procedures and steps that must be conformed to in the cognitive activities, a kind of objective condition that must be met, the most reliable foundation, the highest guarantee of certainty, ultimate explanation and the benchmark that judges the knowledge. The epistemologists after Descartes always enjoy constructing the artificial structure and regard it as the requisite to understand the external word. However, whether such artificial structure exists in the actual cognitive process, it still needs to be solved. If there is no such structure, where the directions of epistemology will be? In fact, in the long course of the development of epistemology, the process of artificial structure from being structured to being negated has given enlightenment for Willard Quine, an American philosopher, which makes the study of epistemology enter into a new level.
