2013 (English)In: Defeasibility in Philosophy: Knowledge, Agency, Responsibility, and the Law / [ed] Claudia Blöser, Mikael Janvid, Hannes Ole Matthiessen, Marcus Willaschek, Rodopi, 2013, 59-73 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
As an important step towards a comprehensive model of challenges and defeaters, it is here argued that securing a previously held epistemic status for a belief in the face of an overriding challenge does not require us to reach a higher epistemic standard than the one the belief originally reached. In the course of the investigation, criteria for when the epistemic status of beliefs are challenged and defeated are suggested. At the end of the paper, these results are then more briefly applied to shed some light on the problem of misleading evidence.
