The Aristotelian Society presents:

Dr Sarah Moss (University of Michigan) – Moral Encroachment

Sarah Moss is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Michigan. She works primarily in epistemology and the philosophy of language, and often on questions at the intersection of these subfields. She is the author of Probabilistic Knowledge (forthcoming with Oxford University Press), in which she defends a unified probabilistic theory of the contents of belief, assertion, and knowledge. For instance, she argues in her book that credences can constitute knowledge, in just the same way that full beliefs constitute knowledge. Her current work concerns the consequences of her theory of probabilistic knowledge for how we think about racial profiling and legal standards of proof.
