Title: Markos Valaris (UNSW)
Title: Reasoning, Rule-Following, and the ‘Taking’ Condition
Abstract: Reasoning is a way of forming or revising attitudes such as
beliefs and intentions. But what sets reasoning apart from non-rational
ways of forming or revising attitudes? According to a popular approach,
reasoning consists in the exercise of dispositions to follow rules. In this
paper I examine and reject attempts to make this idea precise.
Rule-following theories, as I argue, struggle to capture the defeasibility
of most of our reasoning. Taking defeasibility seriously, I suggest, should
lead us to endorse what Paul Boghossian calls the Taking Condition, that
is, the condition that reasoning requires taking it that your response is
supported or warranted by your circumstances.
NB: Tea starts at 3pm
When: Wed 3 Apr 2019 15:30 – 17:00 Eastern Australia Time - Sydney
Where: Muniment Room, University of Sydney
