Anna-Sara Malmgren, Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences: "The Problems of Metaphilosophy”

In this talk I will revisit topics addressed in previous work on thought experiments, and seek to get more clarity on some metatheoretical (i.e. metametaphilosophical) questions. I will discuss what rides on the ‘content problem’ about intuitive judgments about hypothetical cases, and how to adjudicate between different solutions to that problem. And I will argue that such judgments belong to a wider class of judgments which pose a serious challenge to the widely taken-for-granted dichotomy between inferential and non-inferential justification (and knowledge).
