Reasoning as a source of justification

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


In this essay we argue that reasoning can sometimes generate epistemic justification, rather than merely transmitting justification that the subject already possesses to new beliefs. We also suggest a way to account for it in terms of the relationship between epistemic normative requirements, justification and cognitive capacities.
