This is a notification for:
Title: Brian Hedden
Title: Reasons, Coherence, and Group Rationality
What beliefs ought a group to have? A widespread presupposition is that
group-level beliefs should be a function of the beliefs of the group's
members. A host of impossibility theorems show that no such aggregation
function can satisfy intuitively attractive constraints while ensuring
coherent group-level beliefs. I argue that this presupposition is false.
Group-level beliefs should be a function of group-level evidence, not
individual-level beliefs. This allows for a theory of group rationality
that (i) bypasses a host of pessimistic results in the literature on
judgment aggregation and (ii) treats rational individual-level attitudes
and rational group-level attitudes in parallel.
