WORKSHOP: RESPONSIBILITY - THE EPISTEMIC DIMENSION II
When: May 12-13 2015
Where: VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands
It is generally agreed that moral responsibility has an epistemic dimension. Moral responsibility and knowledge interact, but the question is exactly how. For this second workshop in the series, we welcome submissions on the following issues (and related ones):
(1) Does the epistemic condition require awareness or akrasia?
(2) Should the epistemic condition be analysed in terms of quality-of-will?
(3) Does tracing apply to the epistemic condition?
(4) Is the epistemic condition sensitive to luck?
(5) Does moral, as opposed to factual, ignorance excuse?
(6) Is the epistemic condition sensitive to degrees of difficulty?
(7) Does the epistemic condition involve norms of inquiry rather than belief?
(8) Is the epistemic condition independent from the control condition?
