Will Fleisher's recent work concerns what attitude it is rational to have toward one's favored theory during the course of inquiry. I argue that it is often irrational to believe one's favored theory; instead, the appropriate attitude is one that I call endorsement.

He continues to pursue research on endorsement, and also has a research project involving virtue epistemology and reliabilism. In addition, he is interested in fragmented mental states and decision-making.
