I examine the role of time-sensitivity in science by drawing on a discussion between Kevin Elliott and Daniel McKaughan (2014) and Daniel Steel (2016), on the role of non-epistemic values in theory assessment and the epistemic status of speed of inference. I argue that: 1) speed supervenes on ease of use in the cases they discuss, 2) speed is an epistemic value, and 3) Steel’s account of values (2010) doesn’t successfully distinguish extrinsically epistemic from non-epistemic values. Finally, I propose an account of time-sensitivity.
