About this book

Extended Rationality provides a novel account of the structure of epistemic justification. Its central claim builds upon Wittgenstein's idea that epistemic justifications hinge on some basic assumptions and that epistemic rationality extends to these very hinges. It exploits these ideas to address problems such as scepticism and relativism.

Reviews

“In this interesting book, Annalisa Coliva develops an account of the structure of justification inspired by Wittgenstein’s epistemology, and reveals its significance for many contemporary problems. … The book contains many important and persuasive arguments and should be of interest to anyone interested in epistemic justification and related debates.” (Natalie A. Ashton, The Philosophical Quarterly, pq.oxfordjournals.org, January, 2016)
