Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Mind Group Talk (Julia Staffel, Colorado)

Julia Staffel specializes in formal epistemology and traditional epistemology, and her work also relates to issues in philosophical logic, philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science. In this talk she will argue that there is a large class of rationality judgments we routinely endorse that fall neither into the category of doxastic nor the category of propositional rationality.
