Bewersdorf, Benjamin 2013-05-24T10:08:13Z The role of experience for belief revision is seldom explicitly discussed. This is surprising as it seems obvious that experiences play a major role for most of our belief changes. In this work, the two most plausible views on the role of experience for belief change are investigated: the view that experiences merely cause belief change and the view that experiences can justify belief changes. It will become apparent that these views are highly relevant for several arguments on belief revision.<br /><br />While there are several theories for belief revision which are in accordance with the first view, there is no satisfactory account which is in accordance with the second view. Here, such an account will be developed and its presuppositions and implications will be closely investigated.<br /> 2013-05-24T10:08:13Z Belief and Its Revision Bewersdorf, Benjamin 2012 terms-of-use eng
