Abstract

Dr. Miriam McCormick, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Law, discusses her new book, Believing Against the Evidence: Agency and the Ethics of Belief published recently by Routledge. In this book, Dr. McCormick argues that the standards used to evaluate beliefs are not isolated from other evaluative domains. The ultimate criteria for assessing beliefs are the same as those for assessing action because beliefs and actions are both products of agency.
