Call for Graduate Student Respondents
Rationality and Reasonableness, Center for Contemporary Epistemology and the Kantian Tradition (CONCEPT), University of Cologne, April 9-10, 2018.
Workshop abstract: Many epistemologists and ethicists are interested in the norms of ideal rationality. In contrast, many political and legal theorists are interested in the norms of reasonableness. But how are these two sets of norms related to each other? What does reasonableness have to do with ideal rationality, or vice-versa? What can we do to keep our intuitions about one topic from illicitly regulating our theorizing about the other? This workshop will address these questions, and their relation to current work in normative theory.
