Epistemic terms/Chisholm: basic concept: more reasonable than; acceptable, certainly, evident - SchrammVsChisholm: when objectively reasonable, then independent from the subject, then independent from accepting, even from knowledge, etc. - it must also be possible that the subject act according to what it does not believe - even against evidence! - Solution/Chisholm: self-presentation "factual component": the subject agrees - SchrammVs: Dilemma a) an objective rationality lacks factual components - b) when the subject is consenting the concepts do not obey the epistemic logic - Schramm: always something new is "more reasonable".
