Adieu BonJour: Getting Cognitive Possession of "Getting Cognitive Possession"

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
In this paper I argue that Bonjour’s claim that empirical beliefs can only be justified by other empirical beliefs and his use of non-normative “spontaneous empirical beliefs” and the “The Doxastic Preumption” fail to solve the problems of coherence theory. I propose a justification of empirical (and other beliefs) based on the work of B. Lonergan.
