Iteration Principles in Epistemology II: Arguments Against

Philosophy Compass 10 (11):765-771 (2015)

Daniel Greco
Yale University
The prequel to this paper introduced the topic of iteration principles in epistemology and surveyed some arguments in support of them. In this sequel, I'll consider two influential families of objection to iteration principles. The first turns on the idea that they lead to some variety of skepticism, and the second turns on ‘margin for error’ considerations adduced by Timothy Williamson
