Expressivism and Epistemology: Epistemology for Ecumenical Expressivists

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this paper I defend a version of expressivism about epistemic discourse. The version of expressivism I defend is a species of what I have elsewhere called ?Ecumenical Expressivism?. I argue for three main theses. First, I argue that at least some of the most powerful arguments for metaethical expressivism carry over nicely to provide arguments for expressivism about epistemic discourse. Second, I argue that existing expressivist accounts of epistemic discourse are problematic. Third, and finally, I argue that Ecumenical Expressivism can evade some of those problems and provide a more plausible version of expressivism about epistemic discourse.
