  1. Publishing Without Belief.Alexandra Plakias - forthcoming - Analysis:anz040.
    Is there anything wrong with publishing philosophical work which one does not believe?

In this paper, I explore in some detail the implications of such thinking in Sosa’s wider virtue epistemology, with a focus on cases of cognitive enhancement. A certain puzzle is then highlighted, (...)
