Southampton will be hosting two workshops in June. On Friday 13th June, there will be a workshop on Epistemic and Practical Normativity. On Wednesday 18th June, there will be a workshop on Taking Pregnancy Seriously in Ethics and Epistemology. See below the fold for more details.
Friday 13th June: Epistemic and Practical Normativity: Substantive Connections
Speakers: Maria Alvarez (KCL), Matthew McGrath (Missouri), Baron Reed (Northwestern), Jonathan Way and Daniel Whiting (Southampton)
Respondents: Amy Flowerree (Northwestern), Robin McKenna (Geneva), Kurt Sylvan (Southampton), Alex Worsnip (Yale).
This is the first workshop of the AHRC-funded ‘Normativity: Epistemic and Practical’ project. The workshop will focus on the issues of whether/how practical considerations bear on what one ought to believe, and whether/how epistemic considerations bear on how one ought to act. Questions include, though are not limited to:
– Do the sorts of considerations which provide reasons for action also provide reasons for belief?
– Does the practical importance of what you believe bear on what you should or may believe?
– Is it permissible to have a belief that one ought not to act on?
– Does what one ought to do depend on the facts of one’s situation or on the evidence?
