Epistemic Responsibility

Epistemic Responsibility is my term for taking full responsibility for the consequences of ALL of your beliefs (both intended and unintended, conscious and unconscious).

Social Cognitive research has shown that when we believe the world to be a hostile place, we armor and defend ourselves, alert for the slightest threat. Others, perceiving us as ready to attack, respond with hostility, thus providing evidence that the world is a indeed hostile place from which we require protection.  (Schlenker & Weigold, 1989, Snyder, 1979)

Our beliefs become self-fulfilling prophecies.

These articles explore how our beliefs become reality, and what we can do about unhelpful beliefs.
