Thinking About Suspension

Different Perspectives On Doxastic Neutrality

Doxastic suspension is the third doxastic stance besides belief and disbelief. As such, it is a key philosophical notion, yet until very recently it has received only scant attention in the philosophical literature. The aim of this network is to bundle the recently growing interest in suspension in order to set the stage for a systematic approach to suspension and related concepts, such as withholding, doubting, being agnostic, being neutral, opting out, being undecided. The network will include various perspectives and different debates within philosophy, e.g., formal, social, and traditional epistemology as well as philosophy of mind and action, but also connect to related disciplines such as psychology and artificial intelligence.
