LAERA, Rodrigo. An Antiindividualistic Evidentialism. Diánoia [online]. 2014, vol.59, n.73, pp.89-111. ISSN 0185-2450.

The aim of this paper is to propose an anti-individualistic alternative to evidentialism. This alternative maintains that doxastic states constitute themselves as evidences on the basis of the acceptance of the epistemic community in which they arise. In the first place, the paper explains the problems that emerge when trying to link fiabilism to the conviction of evidence. In the second place, it suggests that those problems could be solved if evidentialism includes the idea that evaluation standards of the epistemic community establish what is evidence or not. Finally, it emphasizes the virtues of anti-individualistic evidentialism and seeks to determine its extent.

Keywords : evidentialism; justification; reliability; anti-individualism.
