Epistemic and Practical Normativity: Substantive Connections Event

13 June 2014

For more information regarding this event, please email Dr Daniel Whiting at .

Event details

The first event associated with the AHRC-funded Southampton-based project, Normativity: Epistemic and Practical, will be a one-day workshop on Friday 13th June. Confirmed speakers: • Matthew McGrath (Missouri) • Maria Alvarez (KCL) • Baron Reed (Northwestern).

The workshop will focus on the issues of whether/how practical considerations bear on what one ought to believe, and of 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?

Further details about the workshop, including how to register, and a call for respondents will be circulated in due course.
