Decision Theory: Taking Risks in Epistemology

PHI 533

Info tab content
In this seminar, we apply theories of risk-taking to the epistemic domain to illuminate the norms that govern belief, credence, and related epistemic phenomena. Along the way, we consider applications to traditional epistemological debates, such as what knowledge requires, whether there is more than one rational doxastic response to a body of evidence, and whether practical or moral considerations make a difference to what we should believe.
