Topic: Belief Without Evidence
 
It is a commonly held thought in contemporary epistemology that belief is ruled by evidence; a thought that underlies claims as diverse as that what one generally believes, or what one ought to believe, or what is rational for one to believe, is a matter of the available evidence.  As a result, the opposing thought that there is belief not ruled by evidence is neglected.  However, according to a minority view exemplified by Ludwig Wittgenstein’s On certainty and Jose Ortega’s Ideas and beliefs, the nature, role and worth of many of our beliefs cannot be traced back to evidence.  Has contemporary epistemology overlooked something important here?  Should room be made for the notion of belief without evidence within current epistemology? If so, how?
