Summary:
The idea that belief comes in degrees is based on the observation that we are more certain of some things than of others. This title gives an overview of these theories. It also relates these debates to more traditional concerns of the philosophy of language and mind, and epistemic logic, namely how belief simpliciter does or ought to behave.
