Project Description

Epistemic Environmentalism investigates, among other things, the relationship between epistemic goods and the good life. My papers on wisdom and the value of knowledge are each on this topic. Another focus is applied epistemology and other important related topics, such as trust and justificatory frameworks - for example, paternalist, libertarian paternalist, and liberal frameworks. My papers on trust, paternalism and testimony were born out of my broader research in this topic. The project indeed novel in that it brings together a number of quite different philosophical topics.
