Prospects for Evidentialism
In Littlejohn and Lasonen-Aarnio (eds.), The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Evidence, forthcoming
Abstract. One prominent account of justification comes from the evidentialist tradition. According to evidentialists, whether a doxastic attitude is justified depends on whether that attitude is supported by the believer’s evidence. This chapter assesses the prospects for evidentialism, focusing on the question of whether evidentialists can provide a satisfactory account of their key notions – evidence possession and evidential support – without helping themselves to the notion of justification.
