Abstract

An epistemic deontology modelled on Kant's ethics---in particular the humanity formula of the categorical imperative---is a promising alternative to epistemic consequentialism because it can forbid intuitively impermissible epistemic trade-offs which epistemic consequentialism seems doomed to permit and, most importantly, it can do so in a way that is not ad hoc.
