CFP: Workshop on Deference, Testimony and Diversity
Submission deadline: Monday, October 22 2012
Thursday, November 22 2012 - Friday, November 23 2012
University of Copenhagen
The overall theme of the workshop concerns the ways that production of knowledge and justified belief is generated through social collaboration. More specifically, we are interested in the epistemological issues that arise when people engaged in such collaboration disagree or in other ways are marked by epistemic diversity.
