...Selim Berker When it comes to epistemic normativity, should we take the good to be prior to the right? That is, should we ground facts about what we ought and ought not believe on a given occasion in facts about the value of being in certain cognitive states (such as, for example, the value...

... jibes with his defense of a form of antirealism about epistemic value, on which, whatever it is that makes the epistemic evaluation of belief appropriate, it's not the existence of epistemic value, as something over and above some people valuing things traditionally referred to as epistemic. What...

... rationality can be explained in terms of features of epistemic value. The standard framework is decision-theoretic: consider an agent who has a menu of doxastic options (credal-states, belief-states, or plans to update them) and a purely epistemic utility function (standardly, a measure of accuracy). What...

.... The book has two well-coordinated parts. In the first, McCormick argues that epistemic value is inseparable from moral or prudential value: the same norms apply to belief and action. In the second, she argues that doxastic agency is basically identical to moral agency: both sorts of control involve taking...

... features of epistemic value, one component of which is calibration. The other two features are what Murphy calls “resolution,” which for our purposes is a measure of the frequency of very high and very low (close to zero and one) probabilistic judgments a subject makes, and “uncer- tainty,” which...

.... True Enough has the important and interesting aim of accounting for the epistemic value of felicitous falsehoods, from science to art. But I worry that the resulting account is at best incomplete due to its failure to support some important epistemic distinctions: between truth and felicitous...

... assumptions than they really need. When we strip these arguments down to a minimal core, we can see both how certain replies miss the mark, and also how to devise parallel arguments for other domains, including epistemic “might,” probability claims, claims about comparative value, and so on.

... not reduce to truth. For instance, beliefs may have epistemic value if they amount to knowledge. Since this value is not perfectly luminous to the agent, we can treat it as a ‘result’ in the same way that we considered truth to be a value resulting from the choice over beliefs. Similarly, an internalist...
