Fresh AiR SciPhi - Youtube Show
Fresh AiR SciPhi - Youtube Show

In our debate group, I asked a question about if we had a moral obligation to get vaccinated, one response I got was that we had an epistemic responsibility.

Whilst I’ve glazed the surface of epistemology, looked into the various theories of knowledge and understand epistemic justification aka the burden of proof, I’d not heard this term before. So, of course, I did what I do in all matters of philosophy, Google and send a message to Dave and see if I can understand the basics by the time he responds.

As it happens, the way it was being used was sort of the same as a moral obligation, but not quite and actually there was a lot more to take in than I had time for. After our stream with Ozy where we touched on epistemic justification a few times, Dave and I thought it would be good to cover this topic off in more detail.

We cover of a few elements in tonights stream, starting with:

  • What is epistemology?
  • What do we mean by epistemic responsibility?
  • What makes up epistemic responsibility?
  • How can it be similar to a moral obligation?
  • Is justification part of that responsibility?
  • What do we mean by justification?
  • What counts as justification?

If you have any questions, want us to go into more detail about something, corrections, critique etc. feel free to leave us a message either under the article/video/podcast on the site, on YouTube, or feel free to DM us on one of our social media accounts.

Patreon

At Answers in Reason we provide all our content to you for free, but we do have server costs and would love to be in a position to provide you content more regularly than we do.

As such we have started a Patreon page.

Each Tier has the benefits of the previous tier plus additional benefits

Tier 1 provides basic access to the community. 

Here you will see any of our private blog posts, memes, and anything else we share just to our Patreon. You also get basic access to our discord server.

Tier 2 gives early access

Before we release our articles and podcasts to the public, you get access as soon as they are produced.

Tier 3 gives enhanced access

We will give you the podcast server address with the ability to listen in to the conversation live, and message us whilst on AiR.

You will receive access to the podcasts before they have been edited. The raw show, including any faux pas, and none of the after-show additions like the soundbytes.

You will also get enhanced access on the discord server, and be allowed to join us on the SciPhi streams. (Subject to availability, we don’t want to crash the server)

And lastly, we will send you an AiR T-shirt after 3 months of membership.

Tier 4 gives pro access

As a dedicated fan, we not only give you all the above (plus free delivery on the AiR T-Shirt World Wide) and additional exclusive content but also we have a circa 30 minute interview, finding out about your life and interests, and what you hope to gain from the community.

There will also be additional gifts from time to time, clothing, mugs, etc. 

Tier 5 gives the Apex of Access

You get all the previous benefits PLUS you get to suggest and cohost a topic for Fresh AiR. (The topic does have to be running with the theme of Fresh AiR, e.g. a Philosophical/Scientific angle of sorts)

Tiers may be subject to review and change in future if required, but you will always be informed in advance.
