Call for papers


The last twenty years or so have witnessed the emergence of a variety of new themes in epistemology, as well as the appearance of new approaches to traditional questions such as those pertaining to knowledge, epistemic justification and external-world scepticism. This conference aims to bring together young scholars and grad students working in epistemology from Italy and abroad to explore these new fascinating frontiers. The following is a non-exhaustive list of possible questions that perspective contributors might be willing to address:

- Is there a pragmatic dimension to (our attributions of) knowledge and epistemic justification?

- What does it take to be a virtuous/vicious epistemic agent? How do these notions relate to knowledge, epistemic justification and other epistemic desiderata?

- Are there distinctively epistemic dimensions of injustice, and if so what forms do they take?

- Are factive perceptual reasons introspectively accessible reasons?

- What is constitutive of epistemic authority?

- Does knowledge come first?

- Does believing the truth out of cognitive ability ensure believing the truth safely?

- Can knowledge arise from non-knowledge?

- Is epistemic responsibility a form of moral responsibility?

- Are mind and cognition extended?

- What are the epistemological implications of peer disagreement?

- What does it take to (fail to) transmit warrant and justification?

- What is the architecture of perceptual justification?

- What is evidence? Can it be false?

- How does knowledge how relate to knowledge that?
