Peer Disagreement and Higher‐Order Evidence

Peer Disagreement and Higher‐Order Evidence

(p.111) 6 Peer Disagreement and Higher‐Order Evidence

Thomas Kelly

Oxford University Press

This chapter distinguishes and assesses a set of views about the rational response to peer disagreement. It raises a series of objections to views according to which one should assign ‘equal weight’ to one's own view and the views of those with which one disagrees. It concludes by defending ‘The Total Evidence View’, according to which what one is justified in believing in cases of peer disagreement depends upon what is supported by one's total evidence.

Keywords:   peer disagreement, higher order evidence, equal weight view, total evidence, justification
