I just received a gracious email from Yu Guo, a reader of Certain Doubts who teaches at Communication University of China, and works on epistemology, philosophy of language, and Kant. Since we ordinarily think of analytic epistemology as being at home most in Anglo areas of the world, it is interesting and encouraging to see interest in it in other areas as well. I’m sure the possibilities of discussion with colleagues that many of us take for granted are not nearly so available in other geographic locations, so I’m posting here a quite interesting paper that Yu sent to me with the email. It’s about closure and the argument for skepticism typically called the argument from ignorance. The paper can be found here.
As always comments and discussion strongly encouraged.
