dc.description.abstractSometimes epistemologists theorize about belief, a tripartite attitude on which one can believe, withhold belief, or disbelieve a proposition. In other cases, epistemologists theorize about credence, a fine-grained attitude that represents one's subjective probability or confidence level toward a proposition.

It then explains the broader significance of the belief-credence connection and concludes with general lessons from the debate thus far.
