Abstract

One important strategy for dealing with error in our methods is triangulation, or the use multiple methods to investigate the same hypothesis. Current accounts of triangulation focus the conditions under which it succeeds, but ignore the many ways it can fail in practice. Instead, I argue that an account of triangulation focused on epistemic risk is better able to describe how triangulation fails and to normatively guide future triangulation research.
