Disagreement is common: even informed, intelligent, and generally reasonable people often come to different conclusions when confronted with what seems to be the same evidence. Can the competing conclusions be reasonable? If not, what can we reasonably think about the situation? This volumeexamines the epistemology of disagreement. Philosophical questions about disagreement arise in various areas, notably politics, ethics, aesthetics, and the philosophy of religion: but this will be the first book focusing on the general epistemic issues arising from informed disagreement. Tenleading philosophers offer specially written essays which together will offer a starting-point for future work on this topic.
Richard Feldman is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester. Ted A. Warfield is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
