Is There Room for Justified Beliefs without Evidence?



My paper entitled "Is There Room for Justified Beliefs without Evidence? A Critical Assessment of Epistemic Evidentialism" has been published in the recent edition of Logos & Episteme: an International Journal of Epistemology and is available here. My abstract is as follows:
In the first section of this paper I present epistemic evidentialism and, in the following two sections, I discuss that view with counterexamples. I shall defend that adequately supporting evidence is a necessary, but not a sufficient, condition for epistemic justification. Although we need epistemic elements other than evidence in order to have epistemic justification, there can be no epistemically justified belief without evidence. However, there are other kinds of justification beyond the epistemic justification, such as prudential or moral justification; therefore, there is room for justified beliefs (in a prudential or moral sense) without evidence.
You can read my paper here, here, or here.
