Belief, Values, and the Will

  • Trudy Govier (a1)

In this paper I shall presuppose that:

(1) logic and epistemology are disciplines which supply us with normative statements pertaining to states of belief.

(2) as such, logic and epistemology have implications concerning what we ought and ought not to believe.

(3) as such, logic and epistemology presuppose that there is some sense in which a person controls what he believes — some sense in which ‘can’ has a place in contexts where one comes to believe things.
