Taking Joyce’s (1998; 2009) recent argument(s) for probabilism as its point of departure, this chapter proposes a new way of grounding formal, synchronic, epistemic coherence requirements for (opinionated) full belief. This approach yields principled alternatives to deductive consistency, sheds new light on the preface and lottery paradoxes, and reveals novel conceptual connections between alethic and evidential epistemic norms.

Keywords:   preface, lottery, consistency, belief, accuracy, coherence, evidence
