Quote of the Day

The mere fact that someone disagrees with one's judgement is insufficient grounds for opening one's mind. Most epistemologists forget that it is just as urgent a question to determine when we are justified in opening up our minds as it is to determine when we are justified in closing them.
—Isaac Levi, "Consensus as Shared Agreement and Outcome of Inquiry." Synthese 62, pg. 3
