TEOREMA 2014: ESSAY PRIZE FOR YOUNG SCHOLARS

Deadline for submissions extended to 31st. December 2014

Teorema 2014Essay Prize for Young Scholars
The Spanish Philosophy journal teorema is pleased to announce an essay competition for young scholars. The winner will receive 1500€, and the essay will be published and acknowledged as winner in the journal.

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?
