FoNTI-Project

Doxastic Involuntarism, Evidentialism and Doxastic Morality

My aim is to formulate and to defend an Evidentialist Ethics of Belief. The project is motivated by three themes: Doxastic Involuntarism, the view that we have no direct control over our beliefs; Evidentialism, the view that a belief is epistemically justified only if it is based on adequate evidence; and Doxastic Morality, the view that beliefs can be subject to (non-evidential) normative requirements. I investigate the question of how these three ideas can be put together.

Supervisors: Max Kölbel, Hans Bernhard Schmid
