摘要:
Libertarian paternalism is a weak form of paternalism that recommends “nudges” rather than bans or restrictions. Nudges influence people’s choices and decisions to improve their wellbeing (and hence they are paternalistic) without limiting their freedom (and hence they are libertarian). This paper explores the possibility of the epistemic analogue of libertarian paternalism. What I call “epistemic libertarian paternalism” is a weak form of epistemic paternalism that recommends “epistemic nudges”, which influence people’s beliefs to improve their epistemic performances (and hence they are paternalistic) without limiting their intellectual freedom (and hence they are libertarian). I will clarify the idea of epistemic nudge and consider possible examples. I will also compare epistemic nudge with another form of paternalistic intervention that I call “epistemic incentive”, and discuss their relative advantages and disadvantages.
