The Epistemic Dynamics of Disagreement

Ort: University of Cologne, Neuer Senatssaal
Beginn: 09.10.2017 10:45
Ende: 11.10.2017 16:45

This workshop focuses on the often-neglected question which broader epistemic principles underly peer-disagreement and other kinds of disagreement. The goal is to understand rational responses to disagreement on a fundamental level and to identify the dynamics of higher-order evidence, deep disagreement, formal considerations, and defeat that may ground such responses. This perspective does not only promise to deliver deeper insights into the epistemic significance of disagreement, but also connects the epistemology of disagreement to a number of related issues which have too often been discussed in isolation. Attendance is free, but prior registration is required. The event is part of the DFG-funded research project “Disagreement in Philosophy” hosted by the universities of Cologne and Bonn.

Org. Thomas Grundmann, Elke Brendel, Dominik Balg, Jan Constantin, Chris Ranalli
