Extended Rationality: A Hinge Epistemology (Palgrave Innovations in Philosophy) (Hardcover)
Extended Rationality provides a novel account of the structure of epistemic justification. Its central claim builds upon Wittgenstein's idea that epistemic justifications hinge on some basic assumptions and that epistemic rationality extends to these very hinges. It exploits these ideas to address problems such as scepticism and relativism.
