Leitgeb, Hannes (2014): The Review Paradox. A Note on the Diachronic Costs of Not Closing Rational Belief Under Conjunction. In: Nous, Vol. 48, No. 4: pp. 781-793

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


We argue that giving up on the closure of rational belief under conjunction comes with a substantial price. Either rational belief is closed under conjunction, or else the epistemology of belief has a serious diachronic deficit over and above the synchronic failures of conjunctive closure. The argument for this, which can be viewed as a sequel to the preface paradox, is called the review paradox; it is presented in four distinct, but closely related versions.
