Metanormativity

“The Metaphysics of Epistemic Norms.”
I argue that being truth-oriented is, in a way to be explained, constitutive of a norm’s being epistemic. I give an account of epistemic norms of belief formation and assessment. The account allows for pluralism in the ground-level theory: we can acknowledge a plurality of norms, for example, evidentialist, reliabilist, and coherentist norms.
In progress.
