On Why the Best Should Always Meet

On Why the Best Should Always Meet It seems plausible, even truistic, that when an agent is faced with the choice of giving up one belief or another, the decision should be based on the relative strengths of these beliefs along some dimension of doxastic merit. This said, however, two non-trivial questions arise:(1) Which dimension?(2) How should the contraction outcome be affected by the distribution of beliefs along this dimension? http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Economics & Philosophy Cambridge University Press

Abstract

It seems plausible, even truistic, that when an agent is faced with the choice of giving up one belief or another, the decision should be based on the relative strengths of these beliefs along some dimension of doxastic merit. This said, however, two non-trivial questions arise:(1) Which dimension?(2) How should the contraction outcome be affected by the distribution of beliefs along this dimension?
