Discovering someone disagrees with you is a common occurrence, but how does discovering that another person disagrees with you about something affect the rationality of your beliefs on that topic? This is the question of epistemic significance ofMoreDiscovering someone disagrees with you is a common occurrence, but how does discovering that another person disagrees with you about something affect the rationality of your beliefs on that topic? This is the question of epistemic significance of disagreement, which Matheson seeks to answer here.

Beginning with a survey of the literature on this issue, Matheson maps out the conceptual space, presents the central examples, and explains the key arguments. At the same time, he develops and defends a particular account of the epistemic significance of disagreement – a version of the Equal Weight View. Compared to previous discussions of the epistemic significance of disagreement, this book extends beyond idealized cases of peer disagreement to real-life cases of disagreement and in so doing offers the reader a more complete view of the topic.
