Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Keynote speakers: Alessandra Tanesini (Cardiff), Hélène Landemore (Yale), and Lisa Herzog (TU München).

Dates: December 13-14, 2019.


Political epistemology is an emerging interdisciplinary area of research in which scholars come together to think about questions at the intersection of epistemology, political philosophy, and the social sciences. Topics include:

·       Truth, ignorance, and misinformation in politics

·       Epistemic and deliberative democracy

·       Ignorance and misinformation in politics

·       Deep disagreement and its political significance

·       Political polarization

·       Epistemic paternalism

·       Epistemic injustice

·       Trust and expertise in politics

·       Propaganda, states, and corporations

·       Cognitive biases, stereotypes, and motivated beliefs

·       Business, technology and digital political manipulation

·       Regulation of (the market for) information

This workshop is intended to represent the best work exploring these and other issues at the intersection of epistemology, political philosophy, and social science

This event is part of the Political Epistemology Network and is supported by the generous contributions from NWO (the Dutch Research Council), the Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics (University of Groningen), and the VU CLUE+ Institute.
