PROPOSED RESEARCH PROJECT
This study is aimed at examining a justification operator in doxastic logic. Our formulation of the axioms governing this operator assign a deontic element to justification, which is a philosophically unusual treatment of justification. From this study we hope to contribute to a philosophically robust notion of the justification of belief.
