Epistemology

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?
