Teleology first: goals before knowledge and belief


Schlicht, Tobias; Brandl, Johannes L; Esken, Frank; Glock, Hans-Johann; Newen, Albert; Perner, Josef; Poprawe, Franziska; Schmidt, Eva; Strasser, Anna; Wolf, Julia (2021). Teleology first: goals before knowledge and belief. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 44:e169.

Abstract

Comparing knowledge with belief can go wrong in two dimensions: If the authors employ a wider notion of knowledge, then they do not compare like with like because they assume a narrow notion of belief. If they employ only a narrow notion of knowledge, then their claim is not supported by the evidence. Finally, we sketch a superior teleological view.
