  • Efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in patients with radiation-induced
           rectal ulcers: Report of five cases
    • Authors: Shoichi Yoshimizu; Akiko Chino, Yuji Miyamoto, Fuyuki Tagao, Susumu Iwasaki, Daisuke Ide, Yoshiro Tamegai, Masahiro Igarashi, Shoichi Saito, Junko Fujisaki
      Abstract: For decades, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been considered a treatment option in patients with chronic radiation-induced proctitis after pelvic radiation therapy. Refractory cases of chronic radiation-induced proctitis include ulceration, stenosis, and intestinal fistulas with perforation. Appropriate treatment needs to be given. In the present study, we assessed the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in five patients with radiation-induced rectal ulcers. Significant improvement and complete ulcer resolution were observed in all treated patients; no side-effects were reported. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has a low toxicity profile and appears to be highly effective in patients with radiation-induced rectal ulcers. However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy alone failed to improve telangiectasia and easy bleeding in four of the five patients; these patients were further treated with argon plasma coagulation (APC). Although hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be effective in healing patients with ulcers, it seems inadequate in cases with easy bleeding. Altogether, these data suggest that combination therapy with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and APC may be an effective and safe treatment strategy in patients with radiation-induced rectal ulcers.

  • Endoscopic shielding technique with a newly developed hydrogel to prevent
           thermal injury in two experimental models
    • Authors: Vicente Lorenzo-Zúñiga; Jaume Boix, Vicente Moreno de Vega, Ignacio Bon, Ingrid Marín, Ramón Bartolí
      Abstract: Background and AimA newly developed hydrogel, applied through the endoscope as an endoscopic shielding technique (EndoSTech), is aimed to prevent deep thermal injury and to accelerate the healing process of colonic induced ulcers after therapeutic endoscopy.MethodsLesions were performed in rats (n = 24) and pigs (n = 8). Rats were randomized to receive EndoSTech (eight rats each) with: saline (control), hyaluronic acid and product. In pigs, three ulcer sites were produced in each pig: endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR)-ulcer with prior saline injection (A; EMR-saline), EMR-saline plus EndoSTech with product (B; EMR-saline-P), and EMR with prior injection of product plus EndoSTech-P (C; EMR-P-P). At the end of the 14-day study, the same lesions were performed again in healthy mucosa to assess acute injury. Animals were sacrificed after 7 (rats) and 14 (pigs) days. Ulcers were macroscopically and histopathologically evaluated. Thermal injury (necrosis) was assessed with a 1-4 scale.ResultsIn rats, treatment with product improved mucosal healing comparing with saline and hyaluronic acid (70% vs 30.3% and 47.2%; P = 0.003), avoiding mortality (0% vs 50% and 25%; P = 0.038), and perforation (0% vs 100% and 33.3%; P = 0.02); respectively. In pigs, submucosal injection of product induced a marked trend towards a less deep thermal injury (C = 2.25-0.46 vs A and B = 2.75-0.46; P = 0.127). Mucosal healing rate was higher with product (B = 90.2-3.9%, C = 91.3-5.5% vs A = 73.1-12.6%; P = 0.002).ConclusionsThis new hydrogel demonstrates strong healing properties in preclinical models. In addition, submucosal injection of this product is able to avoid high thermal load of the gastrointestinal wall.

      Abstract: Background and AimAnticoagulants are used to prevent thromboembolic events. Direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC) are our new choice; however, their effect on bleeding risk for endoscopic treatment has not been reported. We aimed to assess the clinical effect of DOAC compared to warfarin for gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).MethodsWe retrospectively studied 97 patients on anticoagulants and treated 108 gastric neoplasms with ESD in three referral institutes. Twenty-four patients were taking DOAC, including dabigatran (12), rivaroxaban (11), and apixaban (one) and 73 were taking warfarin.ResultsIn the DOAC group, delayed bleeding rate was significantly higher in patients on rivaroxaban than in patients on dabigatran (45% vs 0%, P

  • Current status of interventional endoscopic ultrasound
    • Authors: Shomei Ryozawa; Naotaka Fujita, Atsushi Irisawa, Yoshiki Hirooka, Tetsuya Mine
      Abstract: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is being used increasingly in the management of pancreatic fluid collection, biliary and pancreatic duct drainage in cases of failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, drainage of the gallbladder, and other conditions. The role of interventional EUS is rapidly expanding and new interventions are continuously emerging. The development of devices could be a major breakthrough in the field of interventional EUS. New devices would enable the expansion of its role even further and prompt its widespread use in clinical practice. This review focuses on the current status of interventional EUS, especially highlighting the topics that are presently drawing the interest of endoscopists.

  • Diagnostic capability of colon capsule endoscopy for advanced colorectal
           cancer: A pilot study

      Abstract: Background and AimColon capsule endoscopy (CCE) is a safe and effective method for detecting lesions in the colon. However, the sensitivity of CCE in detecting advanced colorectal cancer (CRC) has not been sufficiently evaluated. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to assess the sensitivity of CCE in detecting advanced CRC.MethodsPatients previously diagnosed with advanced CRC by conventional colonoscopy underwent CCE. Primary outcome measure was the sensitivity of CCE in detecting advanced CRC per patient and per lesion. Secondary parameters measured were the sensitivity of CCE in detecting polyps ≥6 mm and ≥10 mm in size in a per-lesion analysis and the safety of CCE.ResultsOf the 21 advanced CRC lesions in 20 patients, 17 were detected by CCE. The per-patient and per-lesion sensitivities of CCE for detecting advanced CRC lesions were 85% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 62–97%) and 81% (95% CI: 58–95%), respectively. All advanced CRC lesions were diagnosed in the accessible region by CCE while the capsule was still functional. A significant association was found between incomplete CCE and failure to diagnose advanced CRC. No severe adverse events occurred.ConclusionThe diagnostic capability of CCE in detecting advanced CRC was limited in cases of procedure incompletion. Refining procedures to increase CCE procedure completion rates are required to enhance CRC detection.

  • Novel characteristics of traction force in biliary self-expandable
           metallic stents

      Abstract: Background and AimIn recent years, knowledge concerning the mechanical properties of self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) has increased. In a previous study, we defined traction force and traction momentum and reported that these characteristics are important for optimal stent deployment. However, traction force and traction momentum were represented as relative values and were not evaluated in various conditions. The purpose of the present study was to measure traction force in various situations assumed during SEMS placement.MethodsTraction force and traction momentum were measured in non-stricture, stricture, and angled stricture models using in-house equipment.ResultsStricture and angled stricture models had significantly higher traction force and traction momentum than those of the non-stricture model (stricture vs non-stricture: traction force, 7.2 N vs 1.4 N, P

  • Endoscopic ultrasonography diagnosis of subepithelial lesions
    • Authors: Mitsuhiro Kida; Yusuke Kawaguchi, Eiji Miyata, Rikiya Hasegawa, Toru Kaneko, Hiroshi Yamauchi, Shuko Koizumi, Kosuke Okuwaki, Shiro Miyazawa, Tomohisa Iwai, Hidehiko Kikuchi, Maya Watanabe, Hiroshi Imaizumi, Wasaburo Koizumi
      Abstract: Using endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), it is practicable to diagnose subepithelial lesions (SEL) with originating layer, echo level, and internal echo pattern etc. Lipoma, lymphangioma, and cyst have characteristic features; therefore, there is no need for endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ectopic pancreas and glomus tumors, which originate from the third and fourth layers, are frequently seen in the antrum. However, ectopic pancreas located in the fundus or body is large and originates from the third and fourth layers (thickening of fourth layer). Each subepithelial lesion has characteristic findings. However, imaging differentiation of tumors originating from the fourth layer is very difficult, even if contrast echo is used. Therefore, EUS-FNA should be done in these tumors, but the diagnostic yield for small lesions is not sufficient for clinical demands. Generally, those tumors, including small ones, should be first followed up in 6 months, then yearly follow up in cases of no significant change in size and features. When those tumors become larger than 1–2 cm, EUS-FNA is recommended. Furthermore, unusual SEL and SEL with malignant findings such as nodular, heterogeneous, anechoic area, and ulceration indicate EUS-FNA. Cap-attached forward-viewing echoendoscope is very helpful for EUS-FNA of small SEL.

  • Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided biliary and pancreatic duct
    • Authors: Vinay Dhir; Hiroyuki Isayama, Takao Itoi, Majid Almadi, Aroon Siripun, Anthony Y. B. Teoh, Khek Yu Ho
      Abstract: Drainage of obstructed bile duct and pancreatic duct under endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) guidance has evolved into viable techniques suitable for patients with failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and/or altered surgical anatomy. One of the major advantages of EUS guidance is the possibility of multiple access points depending upon patient and ductal anatomy. Unlike ERCP, an approachable papilla is not a requisite for successful EUS-guided biliary or pancreatic ductal drainage. Moreover, as the access is away from the papilla, there is the possibility of reduced pancreatitis. A variety of procedures have become available for EUS-guided drainage, and it is important to develop standard terminology and procedural details. EUS-specific stents, including lumen-apposing metal stents have recently become available, and are likely to impact the outcomes of these procedures. Available data show a high success rate and acceptable adverse event rate for EUS-guided biliary drainage. Success rate appears to be low for pancreatic duct drainage because of a variety of reasons. Outcomes of EUS-guided biliary drainage appear equivalent to percutaneous drainage and ERCP. EUS-guided gallbladder drainage appears promising for patients requiring gallbladder drainage but unfit for surgery. Further large controlled studies are needed to evaluate the exact role of these procedures.

      Abstract: Background and AimRadiofrequency ablation (RFA) for dysplastic Barrett's esophagus (BE) is highly effective. RFA failures are infrequent but can be a challenging cohort to manage. There are limited data on the feasibility of liquid nitrogen cryospray ablation for complete eradication of dysplasia (CE-D) and/or intestinal metaplasia (CE-IM) after RFA has failed to achieve CE-IM in patients with dysplastic BE.MethodsThis is a retrospective review from two medical centers of prospectively maintained databases looking at patients that underwent liquid nitrogen cryospray ablation for refractory intestinal metaplasia post failed RFA.ResultsEighteen patients were identified that met inclusion criteria. Eleven patients had persistent dysplasia and IM following RFA and seven had persistent non-dysplastic IM. More than 80% of patients were male with long-segment BE (median length 8 cm). Seventy two percent of patients with dysplasia achieved CE-D after cryotherapy. Fifty percent (9/18) of all RFA failures achieved CE-IM with cryotherapy. In comparison, RFA has a CE-IM of 78% in a less challenging treatment naïve cohort from a large-scale meta-analysis of 3802 patients. No adverse events occurred in our cohort.ConclusionCryospray ablation is feasible and safe for achieving CE-D and CE-IM after RFA failure. The CE-D rates are high with cryotherapy in this population. CE-IM with cryotherapy is acceptable in this difficult-to-treat cohort when compared to CE-IM rates

  • Usefulness of short double-balloon enteroscopy for biliary intervention
           via the papilla of Vater in a patient with Roux-en-Y gastrectomy
    • Authors: Koichiro Tsutsumi; Hironari Kato, Hiroyuki Okada
      Abstract: Short double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) has facilitated endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with surgically altered anatomies 1-3. However, the advantage of the short DBE is not limited to improving success of scope insertion into the target site. We report a case wherein short DBE was useful for biliary cannulation and treatment via the papilla of Vater, which had failed using conventional pediatric colonoscopy (PC) 4,5This article is protected by copyright.

           diminutive polyp removal
    • Authors: Yuki Ninomiya; Shiro Oka, Shinji Tanaka, Kazuki Boda, Ken Yamashita, Kyoku Sumimoto, Daiki Hirano, Yuzuru Tamaru, Kenjiro Shigita, Nana Hayashi, Taiji Matsuo, Kazuaki Chayama
      Abstract: Background and AimEndoscopic removal of all adenomas during colonoscopy is recommended in Western countries. This study evaluated the usefulness of magnifying colonoscopy without removal of diminutive (≤ 5 mm) colorectal polyps.MethodsPatients with diminutive polyps who were observed for over 5 years using magnification at Hiroshima University Hospital were selected retrospectively. Lesions ≥ 6 mm in size, depressed lesions, and lesions with type V pit pattern were indications for endoscopic resection. We investigated the characteristics of lesions indicated for endoscopic resection detected on surveillance colonoscopy and the risk factors for the incidence of lesions indicated for endoscopic resection.ResultsA total of 706 consecutive patients were enrolled. Sixty-eight lesions indicated for endoscopic resection were detected, averaging 9.0 ± 4.8 mm, and 33 (49%) lesions were located in the right colon. The pathologic diagnoses were adenoma, Tis carcinoma, and T1 carcinoma in 58 (85%), 8 (12%), and 2 (3%) lesions, respectively. Five lesions were considered to grow from previously detected diminutive polyps. The relative risks for the incidence of a lesion indicated for endoscopic resection were 1.76 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.004–3.23) for male compared with female, 3.76 (95% CI, 2.03–7.50) for more than 3 polyps at initial colonoscopy compared with 1 polyp, and 2.84 (95% CI, 1.43–5.24) for patients with carcinoma at initial colonoscopy compared with patients with no lesion indicated for endoscopic resection. Nine carcinomas were resected endoscopically.ConclusionDiminutive low-grade adenomas detected by using magnifying colonoscopy may not necessarily require removal.This article is protected by copyright.

      Abstract: ObjectivesRecently, the digital single-operator cholangioscope (DSOCS) has become available. This system may allow diagnosis by direct visualization and allow performance of various therapeutic procedures. The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the clinical utility of the DSOCS for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for biliary disease.MethodsTechnical success was defined as successful visualization of target lesions in the biliary tract and performing forceps biopsy as a diagnostic procedure, and successfully performing treatment such as guidewire insertion for the area of interest, electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL), or migrated stent removal. Also, the present study aimed at investigating diagnostic yield of the cholangioscopic findings and biopsy specimens.ResultsA total of 55 consecutive patients were prospectively enrolled in this study; a diagnostic procedure was performed in 33 patients, and a therapeutic procedure was performed in 22 patients. The overall accuracy of visual findings was 93%, with a sensitivity of 83%, a specificity of 89%, PPV of 83%, and NPV of 100%. However, the overall accuracy of forceps biopsy was 89%, with a sensitivity, specificity, and PPV of 100%, and NPV of 90%. The overall technical success rate of therapeutic procedures such as selective guidewire insertion, EHL or migrated stent removal was 91% (20/22). Finally, adverse events were seen in two cases in diagnostic group, and were not seen in therapeutic group.ConclusionsAlthough additional cases and a randomized, controlled study with another cholangioscope are needed, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures using SPY-DS appear to be feasible and safe.This article is protected by copyright.

  • EUS evaluation for pancreatic cysts: Necessity or overkill?
    • Authors: Nonthalee Pausawasdi; Thawee Ratanachu-ek
      Abstract: Incidental pancreatic cysts have been gradually more recognized in clinical practice due to an increased use of transabdominal ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These lesions consist of inflammatory cysts (pseudocysts) and pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) which have been classified as benign, pre-malignant and malignant. The diagnosis and management strategy of incidentally discovered pancreatic cysts can be challenging as the majority of them are PCNs and CT or MRI alone may not be sufficient to provide an accurate diagnosis. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) provides a mean to obtain cyst fluid for analysis and the recently developed EUS-based technology including contrast-enhanced ultrasound, cystoscopy and needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy allow endosonographers to gain additional useful information. The current data suggest that EUS evaluation of pancreatic cysts offers some benefits especially in cases of inconclusive CT or MRI.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

  • Duodenal endoscopic submucosal dissection with traction method using the
           S-O clip
    • Authors: Rintaro Hashimoto; Dai Hirasawa
      Abstract: Use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) technique has been widespread. However, ESD of lesions in the duodenum is technically more challenging than ESD in other parts of the GI tract because it is difficult to keep the submucosal layer lifted. Therefore, the procedure is associated with severe complications, such as delayed bleeding and perforation. [1] We present a case of duodenal ESD in which traction method was used with an S-O clip (Zeon Medical Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) (Figure 1) [2] to visualize the submucosal layer clearly.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Assessment of morbidity and mortality associated with EUS-guided FNA for
           pancreatic cystic lesions: A System Review and Meta-Analysis
    • Authors: Huiyun Zhu; Fei Jiang, Jianwei Zhu, Yiqi Du, Zhendong Jin, Zhaoshen Li
      Abstract: Background and AimWith increased availability of imaging technology, detection of pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) is on the rise. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) improves the diagnosis accuracy of PCLs. Systematic evaluation of morbidity and mortality associated with EUS-FNA for PCLs has not been performed. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of morbidity and mortality associated with EUS-FNA.MethodsA literature search for relevant English-language articles was conducted on PubMed and EMBASE databases. Main outcome measures for this analysis were adverse effects of diagnostic EUS-FNA, and the associated morbidity and mortality, in patients with PCLs.ResultsForty studies, with a combined subject population of 5,124 patients with PCLs, qualified the inclusion criteria. The overall morbidity due to adverse events of EUS-FNA was 2.66% (95% Confidence Interval [CI]: 1.84%-3.62%), and the associated mortality was 0.19% (95% CI: 0.09%-0.32%). Common post-procedure adverse events included pancreatitis 0.92% (95% CI: 0.63%-1.28%), hemorrhage 0.69% (95% CI: 0.42%-1.02%), pain 0.49% (95% CI: 0.27%-0.79%), infection 0.44% (95% CI: 0.27%-0.66%), desaturation 0.23% (95% CI: 0.12%-0.38%) and perforation 0.21% (95% CI: 0.11%-0.36%). There was no peritoneal seeding in our study. Incidence of adverse events associated with prophylactic periprocedural antibiotic use was 2.77% (95% CI: 1.87%-3.85%).ConclusionsEUS-FNA is a safe procedure for diagnosis of PCLs and is associated with a relatively low incidence of adverse events. Most adverse events were mild, self-limiting, and did not require medical intervention.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

  • Novel gastric mucosal findings in association with proton pump inhibitors
    • Authors: Hajime Isomoto; Hiroki Kurumi
      Abstract: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are prescribed worldwide as the treatment of choice for gastroesophageal reflux disease, and are known to exert preventive effects for upper gastrointestinal injuries due to aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. On the other hand, the long-term use of PPIs may cause such adverse events as fractures and enteric infections. Recently, they have been associated with mucosal changes including parietal cell protrusions, oxyntic gland dilatations and fundic gland polyps (FGPs).1,2 In the current issue of Digestive Endoscopy, Miyamoto et al. have documented interesting endoscopic findings of gastric cracked mucosa (GCM) and gastric cobblestone-like mucosa (GCSM) in association with PPIs.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Toward routine use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for patients
           undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
    • Authors: Tsuyoshi Hamada; Yousuke Nakai, Hiroyuki Isayama, Kazuhiko Koike
      Abstract: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most widely used pharmacological prevention strategy for post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis (PEP).1,2 Experimental data suggest that NSAIDs, a group of inhibitors of PTGS1 (cyclooxygenase-1 or COX-1) and PTGS2 (cyclooxygenase-2 or COX-2), can prevent PEP through inhibition of phospholipase A2 which plays a key role in triggering inflammatory response in the pancreas.3 Given accumulating evidence from clinical trials, peri-procedural use of rectal NSAIDs is considered as an established strategy for prevention of PEP, at least for patients who have risk factors for PEP including younger age, suspected sphincter of Oddi dysfunction as an indication, and a history of pancreatitis.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Self-Defeating Goals
    • Authors: Sven Ove Hansson; Karin Edvardsson Björnberg, John Cantwell
      Pages: 491 - 512
      Abstract: The typical function of goals is to regulate action in a way that furthers goal achievement. Goals are typically set on the assumption that they will help bring the agent(s) closer to the desired state of affairs. However, sometimes endorsement of a goal, or the processes by which the goal is set, can obstruct its achievement. When this happens, the goal is self-defeating. Self-defeating goals are common in both private and social decision-making but have not received much attention by decision theorists. In this paper, we investigate different variants of three major types of self-defeating mechanisms: (1) The goal can be an obstacle to its own fulfilment (self-defeating goal endorsement), (2) goal-setting activities can impede goal achievement (self-defeating goal-setting), and (3) disclosure of the goal can interfere with its attainment (self-defeating goal disclosure). Different strategies against self-defeasance are tentatively explored, and their efficiency against different types of self-defeasance is investigated.

  • Informative Identities: A Challenge for Frege's Puzzle
    • Authors: Elisa Paganini
      Pages: 513 - 530
      Abstract: Frege's puzzle about identity sentences has long challenged many philosophers to find a solution to it but also led other philosophers to object that the evidential datum it is grounded on is false. The present work is an elaboration of this second kind of reaction: it explains why Frege's puzzle seems to resist the traditional objection, giving voice to different and more elaborated presentations of the evidential datum, faithful to the spirit but not to the letter of Frege's puzzle. The final outcome is negative, no satisfactory formulation of the evidential datum is found and Frege's puzzle is challenged until a better formulation of it is found.

  • Left Subsectivity: How to Infer that a Round Peg is Round
    • Authors: Bjørn Jespersen
      Pages: 531 - 547
      Abstract: A property modifier is a function that takes a property to a property. For instance, the modifier short takes the property being a Dutchman to the property being a short Dutchman. Assume that being a round peg is a property obtained by means of modification, round being the modifier and being a peg the input property. Then how are we to infer that a round peg is a peg' By means of a rule of right subsectivity. How are we to infer that a round peg is round' By means of a rule of left subsectivity. This paper puts forward two rules (one general, the other special) of left subsectivity. The rules fill a gap in the prevalent theory of property modification. The paper also explains why the rules are philosophically relevant.

  • It's a Matter of Principle: Scientific Explanation in
           Information-Theoretic Reconstructions of Quantum Theory
    • Authors: Laura Felline
      Pages: 549 - 575
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore the ways in which Axiomatic Reconstructions of Quantum Theory in terms of Information-Theoretic principles (ARQITs) can contribute to explaining and understanding quantum phenomena, as well as to study their explanatory limitations. This is achieved in part by offering an account of the kind of explanation that axiomatic reconstructions of Quantum Theory provide, and re-evaluating the epistemic status of the program in light of this explanation. As illustrative case studies, I take Clifton's, Bub's and Halvorson's characterization theorem and Popescu's and Rohrlich's toy models, and their explanatory contribution with respect to quantum nonlocality. On the one hand, I argue that ARQITs can aspire to provide genuine explanations of (some aspects of) quantum nonlocality. On the other hand, I argue that such explanations cannot rule out a mechanical quantum theory.

  • It is the Business of Laws to Govern
    • Authors: Jonathan Schaffer
      Pages: 577 - 588
      Abstract: Non-Humean accounts of lawhood are said to founder on the Inference Problem, which is the problem of saying how laws that go beyond the regularities can entail the regularities. I argue that the Inference Problem has a simple solution – the Axiomatic Solution – on which the non-Humean only needs to outfit her laws with a law-to-regularity axiom. There is a remaining Epistemic Bulge, as to why one should believe that the posit-so-axiomatized is to be found in nature, but the non-Humean can flatten the bulge. Lawhood serves as a case study of how fundamental posits can do their business.

  • Rational Doxastic Dispositions and the Epistemic Regress Problem
    • Authors: Luis Rosa
      Pages: 589 - 607
      Abstract: In this paper, I deal with a version of the epistemic regress problem. After rejecting foundationalism as a solution to it, I consider two versions of infinitism. The first one is found to be unacceptable, for it fails both to cohere with certain attributions of justification and also to maintain its internal coherence. The second one avoids both problems, and it is found to be the best way of addressing the epistemic regress problem. As the successful version of infinitism makes use of the notion of a rational disposition to form and deploy reasons, I also manage to explicate that notion.
