Papers

With the advent of PhilPapers, I've pretty much stopped updating this.  I'd be happy to send you anything you can't easily find.

----

I typically keep this pretty up to date.  It's an annotated bibliography of some of my papers.  Some are pre-pub, some are drafts, some are proofs, penultimate drafts, or pixie dust.  Please let me know if something is out of order.  Trent_Dougherty Baylor.edu.  

These papers are all easy to download, but stable links directly to some papers can be found here (for purposes of reference to unpublished material): http://bearspace.baylor.edu/Trent_Dougherty/Papers/

This paper springboards from the work of Angelika Kratzer to an account of epistemic possibility as non-zero epistemic probability. It is in revision due to a forthcoming collection of essays by Kratzer in which the target moves a bit.  106k v. 1 Jun 9, 2010, 12:54 PM Trent Dougherty

Under Review. Applies Richard Jeffrey's "radical probabilism" to the problem of peer disagreement. Presented in Amsterdam, descendent of seminar paper for Rich Feldman. Argues that two people with the exact same evidence can disagree rationally even if evidentialism is true. Say what? Yep. Presented in Amsterdam, to be presented at the FEW in Konstanz in the Fall.  83k v. 3 Mar 17, 2010, 10:33 AM Trent Dougherty

Paper with Ted Poston arguing it is very difficult (perhaps impossible) to construct a cumulative case for theism using both the fine-tuning argument and the biological design argument, since they are in *logical* tension with one another.

Reply to Stanley's response to Lewis on fallibilism. Argues that concessive knowledge attributions are expressions of fallibilism and both true and--in context--felicitous. Got a reply from Dodd to which we've replied: see "Clarity about CKA's". Came out in PPR. Keyword Concessive Knowledge Attributions    81k v. 3 Mar 17, 2010, 10:34 AM Trent Dougherty

Suggests that there are tensions between non-skeptical (common sense) epistemologies and skeptical theism. Not the usual stuff though. Came out in Faith and Philosophy.

Penultimate draft of my entry for the Routledge Companion to Epistemology. I survey major views of the 20th century, then apply my own views on probability to give an account that makes Feldman's view equivalent to Peirce's, which, I think, is pretty cool.   211k v. 1 Jun 9, 2010, 12:51 PM Trent Dougherty

Forthcoming in the Southern Journal of Philosophy. Argues that Zagzebski's solution to the meno problem simply doesn't apply in paradigm cases of knowledge. As she's tempted to say in _Virtues of the Mind_, the property expressed by "episteme" in Plato is not the same as the property expressed by "knowledge" in contemporary epistemology. Thus solving the Meno problem for one isn't solving it for the other. Current thinkers just haven't fully come to terms with this yet.    52k v. 2 Sep 7, 2010, 12:05 PM Trent Dougherty

Old paper I like on how to unify responsibilist virtue and reliabilist virtue. Appeals to multiple realizability. Turns out to be someone prescient I think given Greco's turn concerning the meaning of "credit".   47k v. 1 Jan 15, 2010, 12:57 PM Trent Dougherty

Coming out in the European Journal of Philosophy. This paper argues that the Ethics of Belief just is Ethics. That is, that anything and everything you can say to criticize a belief which is not just a formal not fitting the evidence is a paradigm of purely ethical evaluation (or practical rationality).     321k v. 1 Jun 25, 2010, 9:54 PM Trent Dougherty
