Promising Against the Evidence #2

In this Wireless Philosophy video, Berislav Marušić (Brandeis University) continues his discussion of promises to do difficult things, such as the promise to spend the rest of one’s life with someone. Beri presents four possible responses to the problem of promising against the evidence, and explains why each is problematic.
