This is a reminder for:
Title: Alejandro Carballo
"Stability and epistemic value"
An epistemic state is stable, relative to a particular proposition, to the
extent that the degree of belief it assigns to that proposition is
invariant under counterfactual suppositions. I will argue that stability,
thus understood, is an epistemic good. All else equal, epistemic states
that are stable are better, epistemically, than those that are not. I will
then sketch a way of using stability as in order to evaluate questions from
an epistemic perspective, and derivatively to evaluate conceptual resources
in terms of the questions they allow us to formulate.
