Résumé/abstract: In the current debate about which norm governs belief – truth, knowledge, justification, or something else, what is most often in question is which is the constitutive norm, namely what norm do we uncover when thinking about the nature of belief, what a belief is. I argue that answering the question of whether a belief is permissible, or appropriate, sometimes requires going beyond what can be discovered by appeal to constitutive norms, and I suggest that it will likely take us into the practical and moral domain.
