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.
