New Paper on the Swamping Problem

I've just posted a draft of a new paper on the swamping problem here. Essentially, I argue that the swamping problem is best understood as an inconsistent triad composed of (i) a general claim about value, (ii) a specific claim about epistemic value, and (iii) a version of epistemic value monism. As ever, comments welcome!

Michael Lynch in Edinburgh

Michael Lynch (UConn) will be visiting the Department of Philosophy in Edinburgh next Thursday (December 13th) and so we'll be having a one-off meeting of the Epistemology reading group on his paper 'Truth, Value and Expressivism' (if you plan to come, let me know and I'll send you a copy of the paper). Unless you hear otherwise, this will be held 2.30-4pm in the Kemp Smith Room. All are welcome.
