Justification logics are constructive analogues of modal logics. As such, they provide perspicuous models of those modalities that have inherently constructive character, such as intuitionistic mathematical provability or the knowledge operator of evidentialist epistemology. In this dissertation, I examine a variety of positions in epistemology, along with their associated ontological commitments, and develop various classical and non-classical justification logics that are suitable for use as models of these positions.
