The 14th Cologne Summer School in Philosophy (CSSiP) On Knowledge and What Follows takes place in Cologne from August 26 to August 30, 2019. Our special guest is Clayton Littlejohn (King’s College). Over the last decade, Littlejohn has addressed some of the most fundamental questions in epistemology in highly original, thought-provoking, and influential ways. He is the proponent of an unorthodox externalism that requires justified beliefs to be true; and he has extensively explored the revealing interrelations between epistemology and ethics. The Summer School will specifically focus on the following themes:

  • Knowledge-First Epistemology
  • Epistemic and Practical Normativity
  • New Work in the Internalism-Externalism Debate
  • Epistemic Value Theory
  • Epistemic Responsibility and the Justification-Excuse Distinction
  • Reasons, Evidence, and Rationality

The Summer School mainly aims at professional philosophers and graduate students, but anyone is welcome to apply.

Attendance is free but limited to 50 participants – to be selected on the basis of motivation and qualification. Online application is possible until May 1. Please supply a short letter that sketches your academic background and main motivation for participating in the Summer School. If you are interested in giving a brief presentation (approx. 20 minutes) related to Littlejohn’s work, please also send an abstract of no more than 1,000 words. We will inform you about the result of your application soon after the deadline.
