Sharon Berry, Indiana:: Epistemic Sentimentalism
Friday, September 16, 2022

Abstract: In this talk, I'll argue that considerations about basic a priori knowledge suggest a problem for both consequentialist and deontological views in recent debates about the foundations of epistemic normativity. I'll advocate an alternative approach, which I'll call Epistemic Sentimentalism, and contrast this view with its closest relative in the literature (Dogramaci's epistemic communism).
