This workshop is organised by the ERC-funded research project Group Thinking: New Foundations ( at the University of Leeds. This workshop will be hybrid with both in-person and online participation.

We have invited epistemologists who have worked in individual epistemology as well as collective epistemology to explore meta-epistemological questions such as:

  • Should we use the same concepts in individual and collective epistemology?

  • Should collective epistemologists take insights made in individual epistemology seriously, and vice versa?

  • Is there a methodological difference in doing individual and collective epistemology?

  • What is the relation between individual and collective epistemic states ?

  • Should we think of collective epistemic attitudes as being summative/deflationary or non-summative/inflationary?
