The Consistency of Probabilistic Regresses: Some Implications for Epistemological Infinitism [Book Review]

Erkenntnis 78 (2):371-382 (2013)

Abstract
This note employs the recently established consistency theorem for infinite regresses of probabilistic justification (Herzberg in Stud Log 94(3):331–345, 2010) to address some of the better-known objections to epistemological infinitism. In addition, another proof for that consistency theorem is given; the new derivation no longer employs nonstandard analysis, but utilises the Daniell–Kolmogorov theorem
