The Ethics of Belief

This research team's work focuses on the ethics of belief, and centers on themes of faith, trust and dependence. What are the unique ways in which our personal relationships affect us as knowers? Does having faith in our friends and intimates require us to form favorable beliefs about them? In exploring these questions, we’ll draw on ongoing conversations in philosophy of religion to see how they might provide resources to shed light on what and how we should believe about our friends and intimates.
