Rules regresses

Jan Willem Wieland UGent (2011) AGPC 2010 PROCEEDINGS. p.79-92
abstract
Is the content of our thoughts determined by norms such as 'if I know that p, then I ought to believe that p'? Gluer and Wikforss (2009) set forth a regress argument for a negative answer. The aim of this paper is to clarify and evaluate this argument. In the first part I show how it (just like an argument from Wittgenstein 1953) can be taken as an instance of an argument schema. In the second part, I evaluate the relevant premises in some detail, and argue that the dialectical situation is slightly more complicated than a 'dilemma of regress and idleness', as Gluer and Wikforss have dubbed it.
