Topic areas


The overall theme of the workshop concerns the ways that production of knowledge and justified belief is generated through social collaboration. More specifically, we are interested in the epistemological issues that arise when people engaged in such collaboration disagree or in other ways are marked by epistemic diversity.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Jessica Brown (St. Andrews): Anti-intellectualism, Memory, and Testimony
  • Kathrine Hawley (St. Andrews): Asserting and Speculating
  • Mikkel Gerken (Copenhagen): What we talk about when we talk about knowledge
  • Kristoffer Ahlström (Kent): Deference as a Virtue
  • Klemens Kappel (Copenhagen): What is the problem of deep disagreement?
  • Andreas Stokke (Lisbon): Does testimonial knowledge require sincerity?

Organizers: Klemens Kappel, Mikkel Gerken and Kristoffer Ahlström as a part of the research priority area Deference, Testimony and Diversity, funded by Institute of Media, Cognition and Communication.
