As part of the Aims and Norms project, Philosophy at Southampton, in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature at Oslo, will host a one-day workshop on the aims and norms of judgment. The workshop will take place at the University of Southampton on April 13th 2013.

Judgment is subject to norms. Judgments can be correct or incorrect, right or wrong, justified or unjustified. In turn, judgment issues in belief, which is itself subject to norms. Does judgment have an aim, which might explain the norms governing it? Might those norms be akin to rules the following of which leads to the satisfaction of that aim?  What is the relevant aim? And how do the aims and norms of judgment relate to the aims and norms of belief?

Organisers: Conor McHugh, Jonathan Way, Daniel Whiting (Southampton) and Timothy Chan and Anders Nes (Oslo).
