"The Metaepistemological Turn"


Session 2:  In this session we'll talk about the general themes of the "metaepistemological turn" in the debate about permissivism.  We'll focus on work by Horowitz, Greco+Hedden, Horowitz+Dogramaci, and me. A number of people have argued that metaepistemological considerations, and/or the idea that rationality should bear a close connection to accuracy motivates an impermissivist view.  I think the opposite is true.  We'll also talk about some of the methodological questions that "the metaepistemological turn" raises.
