I'd like to welcome Prosblogion's latest contributor Clayton Littlejohn. Some of you will know of Clayton from his comments here or from his personal blog Think Tonk. Currently Clayton is a lecturer in the philosophy department at Southern Methodist University. Most of his current research concerns the justification of belief and action and assorted issues in the philosophy of mind. 

Please join me in welcoming Clayton to the site.

  • Hey Clayton, we meet again, bwahahaha!
    An atheist voice I welcome here, just don’t bring in any heretical externalist epistemology! ;-)~

  • Welcome, Clayton.
    Trent: Externalist epistemology is already here, with me. 🙂 (Divine simplicity appears to entail a radical externalism about divine belief. And the justification of that external belief is, presumably, equally external. Hence some justifications are external)

  • Externalist epistemology has been here since the very beginning of the blog. I don’t know if we ever discussed it as an epistemological issue in its own right, but I would guess that several of the original contributors hold to some form of externalism.
    Welcome, Clayton. I’m not sure I would have ever predicted you would join up with this lot, but your presence here will certainly provoke us to more careful thought (as it has so far already in the comments).

    I’m glad to see Clayton receiving such a warm reception. Now he’ll just have to live up to all the good will. No pressure…
    To be fair to Trent, wouldn’t a heretical externalist epistemology simply be one that deviates from orthodox externalism? SURELY Trent doesn’t mean to suggest that internalism is orthodox! Anyway, Trent we have you surrounded. 🙂

  • I like externalism too!
