Epistemic Obligations : Truth, Individualism, and the Limits of Belief, Hardback Book

Epistemic Obligations : Truth, Individualism, and the Limits of Belief Hardback

Description

Questions of belief, and agency over personal belief, abound as individuals claim to have the right to believe whatever they so choose.

In a carefully constructed argument, Bruce Reichenbach contends that while individuals have direct control over belief, they are obligated to believe--and purposely seek--the truth.

Though the nature of truth and belief is an oft-debated topic, Reichenbach moves beyond surface-level persuasions to address the very core of what constitutes a human right.

These epistemic obligations are critical, as the influence of belief is evident throughout society, from law and education to religion and daily decision-making.

Grounding his argument in practical case studies, Reichenbach deftly demonstrates the necessity of moral accountability and belief.
