  • Rational Credence Through Reasoning
    by Sinan Dogramaci on May 1, 2018 at 12:00 am

    Whereas Bayesians have proposed norms such as probabilism, which requires immediate and permanent certainty in all logical truths, I propose a framework on which credences, including credences in logical truths, are rational because they are based on reasoning that follows plausible rules for the adoption of credences. I argue that my proposed framework has many virtues. In particular, it resolves the problem of logical omniscience. […]

  • On Classical Motion
    by C. D. McCoy on January 1, 2018 at 12:00 am

    The impetus theory of motion states that to be in motion is to have a non-zero velocity. The at-at theory of motion states that to be in motion is to be at different places at different times, which in classical physics is naturally understood as the reduction of velocities to position developments. I first defend the at-at theory against the criticism raised by Arntzenius that it renders determinism impossible. I then develop a novel impetus theory of motion that reduces positions to velocity […]

  • Foundations and Philosphy
    by Dimitris Tsementzis on January 1, 2018 at 12:00 am

    The Univalent Foundations of mathematics take the point of view that all of mathematics can be encoded in terms of spatial notions like "point" and "path". We will argue that this new point of view has important implications for philosophy, and especially for those parts of analytic philosophy that take set theory and first-order logic as their benchmark of rigor. To do so, we will explore the connection between foundations and philosophy, outline what is distinctive about […]

  • Epistemic Norms and Epistemic Accountability
    by Antti Kauppinen on January 1, 2018 at 12:00 am

    Everyone agrees that not all norms that govern belief and assertion are epistemic. But not enough attention has been paid to distinguishing epistemic norms from others. Norms in general differ from merely evaluative standards in virtue of the fact that it is fitting to hold subjects accountable for violating them, provided they lack an excuse. Different kinds of norm are most readily distinguished by their distinctive mode of accountability. My thesis is roughly that a norm is epistemic if and […]

    by on July 14, 2018 at 11:48 am

    I previously explained how Seth Lazar's first objection to my view was confused. His second, however, is more interesting.  Lazar writes:Chappell thinks the objection has to do only with attitudes. His token-pluralistic utilitarianism can, in its deontic verdicts, be extensionally identical to token-monistic utilitarianism (according to which only aggregate well-being is non-instrumentally valuable), but preferable since it encourages us to adopt the appropriate attitude to […]

  • Wesley Salmon
    by on July 13, 2018 at 5:15 pm

    [New Entry by Maria Carla Galavotti on July 13, 2018.] Wesley Charles Salmon (1925 - 2001) was a central figure in twentieth century philosophy of science. Working in the tradition of Hume, Salmon developed a sophisticated version of empiricism combining a genuinely probabilistic approach with realism about theoretical entities. Salmon's writings, characterized by a systematic and crystal-clear style, cover a wide range of topics including logic, the philosophy of space and time, the […]
