Over the last three decades, epistemology has taken what many in the field call a value turn. Epistemologists have begun exploring questions about the distinctive value of our cognitive lives, and how our cognitive lives relate to our moral, social, and prudential lives. They are bringing the results of this new work to bear on such perennial epistemological topics as the nature and scope of human knowledge and rational belief. This symposium aims to draw together a wide range of philosophers and theorists in related disciplines to advance work on value-oriented aspects of epistemology.
Visitors to the symposium are welcome, and attendance is free.
