In epistemology and social epistemology we ask questions such as:
- How should one rationally change one’s beliefs or theories in the face of new evidence?
- Is it possible at all to justify inferences that go beyond the data?
- What does it mean to say that the evidence confirms a theory?
- Is coherence truth-conducive? And: How does belief relate to probability?
- When is it rational to disagree? How should groups deliberate?
- And: How should we aggregate logically interconnected judgments?
