Add a talk


There has been a resurgence of interest, recently, in the idea that in perceptual experience, subjects bear a relation of acquaintance to the objects of perception that grounds non-propositional knowledge of things. Some recent work has explored the implications of this view for ethics and evaluative reasoning more broadly. We hope to generate interest in this research program by inviting senior and junior scholars working in the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and value theory to Cornell University for talks and discussion held in-person on May 13 - 15, 2022. 

Scholars participating include: 

Earl Conee (University of Rochester), Brie Gertler (University of Virginia), Matt Duncan (Rhode Island College), Anna Giustina (University of Liege), Uriah Kriegel (Rice University), Emad Atiq (Cornell University), Colin Marshal (University of Washington), Matthew McGrath (Washington University in St. Louis), Olivia Bailey (University of California, Berkeley), L.A. Paul (Yale University), Carlotta Pavese (Cornell Univeristy), Adam Pautz (Brown University), Nico Silins (Cornell University), Susanna Schellenberg (Rutgers University), Umrao Sethi (Brandeis University), and Katalin Balog (Rutgers University).
