Others search to justify specific norms inside of a naturalised framework, the extra wonderful ones together with naturalist takes at the a priori and intuitions. ultimately, but others learn concrete examples of the appliance of norms inside specific epistemic endeavours, corresponding to psychopathology and layout. the general photograph is that of an intimate engagement with problems with normativity on the a part of naturalist philosophers - wondering many of the basics whilst they struggle to determine a few of the information.

Laudan replies to this that, intuitively, norms can, if justified, explain why theories work; and that otherwise the question of which comes first, norms or theories, is like the proverbial 'chicken-andegg' (Laudan 1996: 164-5). Now I think Laudan is right that norms, as he conceives of them, can explain why theories are chosen. However, this does not mean there is no meaningful issue as to which is prior. Indeed, a simpler point than Rosenberg's is just this: since hypothetical norms are justified on the basis of empirical connections between means and ends, why not just stick with claims about these empirical connections and jettison the norms?

This will be the case even if cognitive practices are in some way supervenient on natural psychological capacities, a view that need not imply reduction to them. (For more detailed discussion of the relationship between psychological capacities and non-psychologistic norms, see NNE: ch. 1). It is essentially this idea that forms the basis for the first type of NE I will discuss in this paper, which I dub 'antipsychologism'5. The basic idea is that naturalistic epistemic norms can be seen as yielded through the explication of our basic cognitive practices.
