Epistemic Value

Sunday, October 09, 2011


I haven't read this paper by Guy Axtell yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so:

Axtell ('Recovering Responsibility,' 2011, Logos and Episteme),

And here's the very interesting paper by Trent Dougherty which it responds to:

Dougherty ('Reducing Responsibility: An Evidentialist Account of Epistemic Blame,'
2011, European Journal of Philosophy),

Epistemology @ Edinburgh: Current and Upcoming Events

A summary of what the Edinburgh Epistemology Research Group is currently up to and has planned for the near future:

Regular Seminars/Groups
Note that of these events both the Nature of Knowledge Lecture and The Aims of Inquiry and Cognition Conference are free to everyone and there's no need to register (the other two events require registration). In addition, we will as usual have a Christmas Graduate Epist-Fest Workshop, which will be open to everyone (this year it will be on Friday December 9th), and we'll also be hosting another graduate workshop in the spring (Thursday May 24th). Looking ahead, we're planning a major conference in 2013 to celebrate 50 years since Gettier's article.
