Work in Progress

I’ve uploaded three papers that I’ve been working on over the last year or so to my website. All of these are very much in draft form.

  • Knowledge, Bets and Interests. I set out my preferred version of interest-relative invariantism, which links knowledge closely to decision theory. In particular, I argue that the things we write on the decision table for a choice facing an agent are all and only the things the agent knows, and this only makes sense if a version of interest-relative invariantism is true.
  • Defending Interest-Relative Invariantism. This is a companion paper to Knowledge, Bets and Interests. I argue that something like my preferred version of interest-relative invariantism is immune to a wide variety of criticisms that have been sent in the direction of interest-relative invariatism in recent years.
  • Disagreements, Philosophical and Otherwise. I’ve tried to turn Disagreeing about Disagreement into something ready to be published. This has involved adding length afterthoughts, saying more clearly than I could in the earlier paper where the regress objection fits into the broader debate about the equal weight view of disagreement.

I’ve also updated my collected online papers to include these, and updated the seminar notes for my scepticism graduate course.
