Talk Title:  “The truth problem for permissivism”

Talk Abstract:  A good theory of rationality should show how rationality is connected to truth. I will compare two accounts of the connection between rationality and truth, one for impermissivism (according to which there is a unique rational response to any given body of evidence) and one for permissivism (according to which there can sometimes be multiple rational responses to the same evidence). Impermissivism wins.
