CFP: Operationalizing Epistemic Concepts
Submission deadline: Monday, August 20 2012
Tuesday, September 11 2012 - Wednesday, September 12 2012
This workshop is devoted to the topic of operationalizing epistemic concepts, such as explanation, confirmation and causation, and to bringing together philosophers and experimental psychologists who are interested in human rationality and human reasoning. We investigate the methodology of operationalizing epistemic concepts both from a theoretical and an empirical point of view. How should we work out predictions that are precise enough to be put to empirical test? Which experimental paradigms should be adopted in research on human reasoning? How can we connect philosophical theorizing about epistemic concepts to the long-lasting empirical tradition in psychology?
Philosophers and psychologists with an interest in participating should contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org before August 20, 2012, and motivate their reasons for participation (there is only limited space). There are also a few slots left for presentation. Those would like to present an ongoing project should submit a 200-words abstract. A more detailed description will be asked upon acceptance and be circulated among the participants.
The workshop focuses on the discussion of ongoing projects and is not suitable for presenting past work. See the webpage for more information.
