Description

The stance of norm employment explained by Hakob Barseghyan

Since norms are a subtype of theory, all the epistemic stances that can in principle be taken by an epistemic agent towards theories of all types can also be taken towards norms. In addition to these more universal stances, norms can also be employed, i.e. they have the capacity of constituting the actual expectations of the epistemic agent. This applies to norms of all types.
