The epistemic value of reflection

Allysson Vasconcelos Lima Rocha

Resumo


I discuss reflection as a means to achieve true belief and avoid error. I argue in the first section how can this be treated as a separate problem. In the second section, I discuss Sosa’s Virtue Epistemology approach to the epistemic value of reflection. In the third, I raise problems for this view and argue that, if ignorance possess epistemic value, it is an interesting form of dealing with these difficulties.
