Certain Doubters on Evidence
In the absence of a post here, there's a very interesting and active thread over at Certain Doubts about a paper by Ram Neta (who's visiting Austin in a few weeks time) and Mark Phelan. The paper argues that the 'folk' aren't anti-intellectualists about evidence, a conclusion which they take to cause trouble for Jason Stanley, who has expressed considerable sympathy for the view that evidence is interest-relative. So far the discussion has drawn in the authors, Kvanvig, Fantl, DeRose, Stanley, and others. Worth checking out.
