The 12th Cologne Summer School in Philosophy (CSSiP) on


“Advantages of Evidentialism”


will take place in Cologne, October 2 through October 6, 2017. Our special guests will be Earl Conee and Richard Feldman (University of Rochester). Over the last few decades, Conee and Feldman have shaped and defended one of the most seminal and intriguing internalist views in epistemology – a view that puts mental evidence center stage. The Summer School will focus on the following themes in particular:


What is Evidentialism?

Evidentialism and its Rivals

Disagreement and Higher Order Evidence

Skepticism and Evidentialism

Epistemically Responsible Belief


The Summer School mainly aims at professional philosophers and graduate students.


Attendance is free, but limited to 50 participants – to be selected on the basis of motivation and qualification. Online application is possible through May 15. Please add a short letter that sketches your academic background and main motivation for participating in the Summer School. If you are interested in giving a brief presentation (approx. 20 minutes) related to Conee and Feldman’s work, please also send an abstract of no more than 1,000 words. We will inform you about the success of your application soon after the deadline.
