Topic of the conference

Our conference focuses on two major questions: 1) is truth the sole and most fundamental epistemic value and 2) is the value of truth exclusively or fundamentally epistemic? While the focus of our conference is epistemology, we also welcome submissions on broadly related subjects such as philosophy of science, education or social philosophy.

Certain topics of interest, related to the problem of the value of truth, include:

  • Epistemological consequentialism
  • Virtue epistemology
  • The nature of epistemic norms
  • The axiology of doxastic states
  • Veritism
  • Group knowledge and social epistemology
  • Epistemic rationality
