Belief is the most fundamental doxastic state that we use to explain people’s decisions and actions. This course is about the nature of belief and its relationship to rationality constraints. We will learn and discuss about some different approaches to beliefs, different categorizations of beliefs and try to understand the distinction between rational and irrational beliefs. We will also see a new attempt to make sense of inconsistent beliefs called fragmentation theories.
