Epistemology Learning Goals
The main goal of the 2nd Urbino Summer School in Epistemology is that of fostering theoretical reflection on the fundamental issues, concepts, and methods of epistemology in the analytic tradition by providing students and young scholars with the opportunity to audit lectures held by internationally renowned experts in the field, and to discuss and exchange views within the group sessions led by the speakers.
Particular attention will be devoted to the following issues:
- Naturalized epistemology
- Methodology and meta-epistemology
- Experimental philosophy (xphi)
- Epistemic contextualism
