Title: Hallie Liberto
Rape, Self-Defense, and Epistemic Responsibility

In this paper I will investigate our epistemic responsibility for taking  
measures that ensure, or improve the accuracy of our beliefs in two  
high-stakes contexts. First, I will argue that Donald Hubin and Karen  
Healey are correct that the “Reasonable Man” standards for determining mens  
rea in cases of rape should be replaced by standards regarding: what is it  
reasonable for the state to expect of a person? Second, I will explain why  
a parallel move is sensible in cases of self-defense. Third, I will explain  
that Hubin and Healey’s approach is not appropriate for determining matters  
of consent in sexual coercion cases, nor is it appropriate for determining  
rights-forfeiture in cases of self-defense. These disparities, I argue, are  
due to the link between epistemic responsibility and stakes.
