The method of reflective equilibrium and intuitions


Langkau, Julia (2013). The method of reflective equilibrium and intuitions. In: Hoeltje, Miguel; Spitzley, Thomas; Spohn, Wolfgang. Was dürfen wir glauben? Was sollen wir tun? - Sektionsbeiträge des achten internationalen Kongresses der Gesellschaft für Analytische Philosophie e.V. Duisburg-Essen: Universität Duisburg-Essen, 352-364.

Abstract

Reflective equilibrium has been considered a paradigm method involving intuitions. Some philosophers have recently claimed that it is trivial and can even accommodate the sort of scepticism about the reliability of intuitions advocated by experimental philosophers. I discuss several ways in which reflective equilibrium could be thought of as trivial and argue that it is inconsistent with scepticism about the reliability of intuitions.
