Some Evidence is False

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 91 (1):165 - 172 (2013)
Abstract
According to some philosophers who accept a propositional conception of evidence, someone's evidence includes a proposition only if it is true. I argue against this thesis by appealing to the possibility of knowledge from falsehood
