Hypothetical and Categorical Epistemic Normativity

Southern Journal of Philosophy 42 (2):273-290 (2004)
Abstract
In this paper, I consider an argument of Harvey Siegel's according to which there can be no hypothetical normativity anywhere unless there is categorical normativity in epistemology. The argument fails because it falsely assumes people must be bound by epistemic norms in order to have justified beliefs
