- 03/18/10: I have posted a really neat forthcoming paper by Federico Luzzi on knowledge from ignorance (specifically, on the principle I was calling "Conservation" in my notes from week 6). I wish I had known about this paper before that seminar meeting!
- 03/17/10: I have posted the papers by Cohen, Van Cleve, and Vogel (that Mike mentioned in seminar this week) on bootstrapping/easy knowledge.
- 03/10/10: I have posted a neat paper by Sergio Tennenbaum on "theoretical akrasia". I have also posted chapters 6 and 7 from Audi's Epistemology. These provide a nice background on the "received view" of inferential knowledge that I was discussing in seminar today.
- 03/09/10: I have posted an updated version of Justin's manuscript. He will be presenting his own error theory (an alternative to Niko's, which he discussed a couple of weeks ago) in the last meeting of the seminar.

- 02/20/10: I have posted the readings for next week. The main thing to read is the paper by Justin. Also recommended is Niko's "How Does Coherence Matter?".

- 01/29/10: Mike Titelbaum will be a guest presenter on March 16. So, instead of talking about disagreement that week, we'll be talking about bootstrapping. See the syllabus for details.
