Truth-Conduciveness

  • Jarrett Leplin
Part of the Philosophical Studies Series book series (PSSP, volume 112)

The theory of epistemic justification I shall advance is based on an assumption: epistemic justification is justification that promotes the epistemic goal of believing truths without believing falsehoods. This chapter explains why an assumption is needed, motivates my choice of what assumption to make, and clarifies what is being assumed.
