In Folk Epistemology María G. Navarro makes accessible to everyone interested on folk epistemology what the scientific community publishes on this topic.
What the definition of a heuristic is and what is its effect on reasoning? Why does it make sense to think that people’s inferences are influenced by the content of their premises? How could we define perceptual knowledge? Is there a common competence to reason about knowledge? What can the literature on experimental epistemology bring to a folk epistemology definition? Is it possible to formalize common sense or a common competence to ascribe knowledge? Is empathy a source of justified belief? Does it make sense to explore cultural variations in theories of mind?
These are questions we ask all in one way or another in our ordinary life. Folk Epistemology is the blog of an interpreter dedicated to establishing a dialogue between our diaries inquires and its academic formulation in philosopher’s works.
It's exciting to investigate some of the answers given to these questions by philosophers like Lisa Bortolotti, Susanna Siegel, Scott Sturgeon, Joshua Knobe, Josefa Toribio, Gerd Gigerenzer, Finn Spicer, Martin Kusch, Stephen Stich, Bryony Pierce, Kristin Andrews, Alvin I. Goldman, Daniel D. Hutto, Miranda Friker, Raymundo Morado, Stephanie Ruphy, Dan Zahavi, Eric Schwitzgebel, María José Frápolli or Maja Spener.
