Title: TIM SMARTT
Title: Does Ought Imply Can in Epistemology?
Abstract: In this paper I consider whether ought implies can in
epistemology. A number of epistemologists take it as a desideratum of their
theorising that the insights of their work will be applicable to actual
thinkers’ doxastic lives. That is, many theorists hold that there is
something fundamentally normative about epistemology, and it ought to issue
in some sort of guidance or implementable advice for real people
deliberating about what to believe. In this paper I consider whether such
an attitude necessarily amounts to endorsing an ought implies can principle
for epistemology. I suggest the answer depends on what concept is expressed
by the can relatum of the principle. I consider three different senses of
an epistemic can - a metaphysical can, a voluntaristic can, and a
psychological can - and argue that each importantly changes both the
content and plausibility of a epistemic ought implies can principle.
