Submission is now open for a special issue of Synthese on epistemic justification.
Epistemic justification is a crucial concept in epistemology, connected to practically all debates within the field. Traditionally it is that which has to be added to true belief in order to yield knowledge, but in recent times the concept has been related to such notions as rational belief change and evidential support, epistemic luck, epistemic virtue and normalcy. The goal of the special issue is to collect new ideas on the subject within different research traditions in analytic epistemology, in particular those which connect the formal and informal approaches.
Papers can be submitted online via the Synthese editorial manager:
Please make sure to choose “S.I.: Epistemic Justification” as article type.
The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2016.
