AN EPISTEMIC RATIONALE FOR ORDER INDEPENDENCE

MICHAEL TROST
2014 International Game Theory Review  
We tackle this question from an epistemic perspective and attempt to figure out, whether order-independence contains some specific epistemic meaning.  ...  We also examine the consequences of two weakenings of this property on our epistemic motivation for order-independence.  ...  An Epistemic Rationale for Order-Independence In this section, we aim to provide an epistemic rationale for order-independent deletion processes in strategic games.  ...

Skorupski on spontaneity, apriority and normative truth

Kurt Sylvan
2016 The Philosophical Quarterly  
While this premise is not, it is argued, obviously true, the view it supports does provide a good way to undergird Skorupski's most interesting rationale for his reasons-first approach.  ...  we cannot plausibly combine Skorupski's spontaneity-based epistemology of normativity with his cognition-independent view of normative truth. § §2-4 consider whether we should keep the epistemology and  ...  Indicative evidence, after all, would provide the clearest example of an objective epistemic reason independent of anyone's actual or possible knowledge.  ...

On Rationales for Cognitive Values in the Assessment of Scientific Representations

Gertrude Hirsch Hadorn
2018 Journal for General Philosophy of Science, Zeitschrift für allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie  
These properties may facilitate the application of epistemic values to credibility assessments, which provides a rationale for assigning an auxiliary function to cognitive values.  ...  Specifying and weighing cognitive and epistemic values relative to a given problem is a legitimate second-order function of social values.  ...  On Rationales for Cognitive Values in the Assessment of… 329  ...

The epistemic value of expert autonomy

Finnur Dellsén
2018 Philosophy and Phenomenological Research  
According to an influential Enlightenment ideal, one shouldn't rely epistemically on other people's say-so, at least not if one is in a position to evaluate the relevant evidence for oneself.  ...  Specifically, I suggest that it is an appropriate ideal for those who serve as experts in a given epistemic community, and develop a notion of expert acceptance to make sense of this.  ...  Of course, I am interested here not in the adequacy of these measure of evidential independence and coherence, but in whether an analogous measure can be used to account for the value of epistemic autonomy  ...

Validation Reconceived: The Double Treatment Experimental Design

Tobias Halbherr, Manu Kapur
2020 Frontiers in Education  
In other words, V A is at once an empirically grounded validity argument for A ′ and an empirically validated epistemic argument E A for ontology A.  ...  Furthermore, and crucially, validity is an epistemic construct and needs to be argued for (Kane, 2006) .  ...  This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY).  ...

Establishing Assessment Scales Using a Novel Disciplinary Rationale for Scientific Reasoning

Epistemic Internalism and Knowledge-Relevant Anti-Individualist Responsibility

Leandro de Brasi
2017 Manuscrito  
My concern here is with the internalism/externalism controversy about some specific positive epistemic status required for knowledge which is normally understood in terms of epistemic responsibility.  ...  I argue that, given our pervasive epistemic interdependence, such particular debate needs to be reformulated in anti-individualistic terms if it is to be an interesting one. ---  ...  But, leaving aside that such notion, as mentioned, depends ultimately on the motivation for the view, this wouldn´t be an independent motivation for mentalism.  ...

Lay intuitions about epistemic normativity

Pendaran Roberts, James Andow, Kelly Ann Schmidtke
2017 Synthese  
Recent empirical work on non-philosophers' intuitions about epistemic normativity reveals patterns that cannot be fully accounted for by direct epistemic consequentialism.  ...  On the basis of these results, one might picture participants as "epistemic deontologists." We present the results of two new experiments that support a more nuanced picture.  ...  Here the rationale for the guess being good is epistemic. Acknowledgements We would like to thank Ivar Hannikanen, Aimie Hope, and Luke Elson for helpful comments.  ...

Deep Deterministic Uncertainty for Semantic Segmentation [article]

Jishnu Mukhoti, Joost van Amersfoort, Philip H.S. Torr, Yarin Gal

We study the similarity of feature representations of pixels at different locations for the same class and conclude that it is feasible to apply DDU location independently, which leads to a significant  ...  DDU enables quantifying and disentangling epistemic and aleatoric uncertainty in a single forward pass through the model.  ...  Computing feature density: Following the rationale above, we fit a GDA assuming pixels to be independent samples.  ...

AN ASSUMPTION NETWORK-BASED APPROACH TO SUPPORT MARGIN ALLOCATION AND MANAGEMENT

S. El Fassi, M. D. Guenov, A. Riaz
2020 Proceedings of the Design Society: DESIGN Conference  
AbstractPresented is an approach to support margin allocation and management via a graph-theoretical network of assumptions.  ...  Ultimately, this methodology is intended to assist decision-makers in managing assumptions and examining their impact on an architecture.  ...  Margins are assigned to parameters in order to mitigate the risk associated with epistemic uncertainty.  ...

Educating for ignorance

Rik Peels, Duncan Pritchard
2020 Synthese  
.,) ends, and which didn't also serve epistemic ends, would not be in the market to count as an educational practice in the first place. It is a moot point what these epistemic ends are, however.  ...  One reason why an educational practice might be explicitly geared towards the generation of ignorance is that the epistemic ends of education are coming into conflict with its non-epistemic ends.  ...  an independent epistemic basis is easily attained (two conditions that obviously hold in this case).  ...
