Graduate Certificate Student Carolina Flores' paper "Delusional Evidence-Responsiveness" is forthcoming
in an edition of the scholarly paper Synthese. In the paper, Flores argues that delusions are evidence-responsive and looks at consequences for long-standing debates on the nature of delusions and at ethical and treatment implications. Flores notes, "Though delusions may seem like a niche topic, I hope that some
of what I say here is helpful for thinking about conspiracy theories, ideological beliefs, and other cases of irrational or evidence-resistant belief." Read the full abstract on Synthese here.
