Idea & Motivation

It is often assumed that knowledge claims must be justified. But what kind of justification is required for knowledge? Under what conditions is it rational to expect that a believed proposition is (probably) true? And, is it possible to address skeptical concerns by invoking epistemic justification? These are some of the questions currently being debated, often in the context of underlying positions ranging from versions of foundationalism to infinitism and coherentism. This conference will address these questions, bringing together researchers from formal epistemology and mainstream epistemology. In doing so, we will address, among other things, how degrees of belief are justified, how perception is related to justification, how belief change relates to justification, under what conditions (if any) is coherence truth-conducive, how social interaction and social systems relate to epistemic justification, and whether there can be degrees of justification and, if so, how they can be measured. Overall, this conference is driven by the belief that dialogue between different epistemological approaches is beneficial to all and promotes progress in the discipline
