RIMOLDI, Florencia. A Genealogical Defense of Non-Purism in Epistemic Justification. Tópicos (México) [online]. 2021, n.60, pp.37-73.  Epub Feb 23, 2021. ISSN 0188-6649.

In this work I propose and defend a non-purist conception of epistemic justification according to which the latter depends in part on non truth-conducive factors, such as the pragmatic context of people. To do so, I present three distinct perspectives on the notion of justified belief. In the first section I analyze the most salient aspects of the pre-theoretical notion. In the second section I defend a non-purist permisive view that recovers the elements of the pre-theoretic view in a theoretical manner and extends them towards non-purism. In the third section I defend this latter view by means of a genealogical account of the origin of the concept of justification.

Keywords : justification; belief; action; genealogy.
