The Taiwan Philosophical Logic Colloquium (TPLC) is a biennial conference series established in 2012 and hosted by the Department of Philosophy at National Taiwan University. For its fifth iteration, TPLC-V, the conference is organized by the Center for Asian Philosophy and Analytic Philosophy within the same department. This conference series, funded by Ms. Wendy Huang and Shun Yih Ltd, serves as a platform to foster dialogue among philosophers and logicians, covering a broad range of significant issues. Our ambition is that the TPLCs will further stimulate the growth of logic and analytic philosophy in East Asia.

The central theme of TPLC-V is “Pathways of Epistemological Enquiries”. We aim to facilitate a comparative study of different approaches to epistemological issues, striving towards a unified way of addressing epistemological questions. To achieve this goal, our plan is to invite a diverse group of epistemologists, ranging from those identified as traditional epistemologists to logicians specializing in epistemic logic.
