Keep Changing Your Beliefs, Aiming for the Truth

Erkenntnis 75 (2):255-270 (2011)
Abstract
We investigate the process of truth-seeking by iterated belief revision with higher-level doxastic information . We elaborate further on the main results in Baltag and Smets (Proceedings of TARK, 2009a , Proceedings of WOLLIC’09 LNAI 5514, 2009b ), applying them to the issue of convergence to truth . We study the conditions under which the belief revision induced by a series of truthful iterated upgrades eventually stabilizes on true beliefs. We give two different conditions ensuring that beliefs converge to “full” (complete) truth , as well as a condition ensuring only that they converge to true (but not necessarily complete) beliefs
