A Luxury of the Understanding: On the Value of True Belief

Allan Hazlett

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This is a critical study of the value of true belief: I argue that true belief is at most sometimes eudaimonically valuable (i.e. valuable vis-à-vis the wellbeing of the believer), and criticize realist accounts of the "epistemic" value of true belief that appeal to the thesis that belief "aims at truth."
