Kinds of Reasoning

IV FINO Graduate Conference in Mind, Language and Science

3rd and 4th September 2018, Vercelli and Novara

Reasoning is a distinctive feature of human beings that comes into play in a variety of forms. Our conference aims at exploring such a variety: which kinds of reasoning lead us astray, and which ones, on the contrary, enable us to approach objectivity? Actually, can we really speak of different “kinds” of reasoning, or is there a fundamental unity behind this apparent diversity?  In order to improve our knowledge on this topic, we think it is essential to integrate contributions from different perspectives: logical, epistemological, psychological etc. Indeed, we believe it is very important to achieve a comprehensive overview on reasoning and on the methods used to study this topic in order to explore both the potential risks and the virtues of different forms of reasoning.

 Invited Speakers

Carlotta Pavese (Duke University)

Jan Sprenger (University of Turin)

The conference is held within the framework of the PhD Program in Philosophy of the North-west Italy Philosophy Consortium (FINO) with the contribution of Compagnia di San Paolo.
