…so there’s this assumption called the limit assumption which basically says that doxastic orders are well-founded. If you only consider beliefs as being static, the assumption is philosophically implausible. However, when you do belief change, than it becomes crucial for a lot of doxastic operations. Without it, you can’t be sure that revising a belief set returns a belief set. Which considerations is more important? Static or dynamic? I will try and explain what that all means.
