The latter indeed serves as a weak, but precise explication of the notion of coherence as it is used in the current epistemological discussion. After discussing their epistemological setting, the paper considers four ways of establishing these principles. They may be inferred neither from enumerative induction, nor from the nature of propositions as objects of belief, nor in a Kantian way from self-consciousness. Rather, I propose a fairly rigorous way to infer them from an even more fundamental rationality principle of non-dogmatism and an elementary theory of perception.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>1999</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Two Coherence Principles</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-23T13:46:35Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
