Van Inwagen once wrote (in his influential paper ‘Modal epistemology’ from 1998) that “modal epistemology is a subject about which little is known”. Today, the discipline has flourished. A lot has been written since then and research on the topic continues to be the focus of a large community of philosophers. We certainly know more today about the topic than we did in 1998, but it would be daring to say that our epistemic situation is much better. The discipline has witnessed a Rationalist Renaissance and is now witnessing what might end up being an anti-rationalist turn. This workshop aims to provide a forum for discussion and to reflect, via the contributed talks and informal discussions, the state of art of the discipline
