For more information regarding this event, please email Jonathan Way at .

Event details

Philosophy at Southampton will host the second workshop of the AHRC-funded 'Normativity: Epistemic and Practical' project.

The workshop will focus on explanatory connections between epistemic and practical normativity. For instance, are epistemic norms (reasons, oughts, requirements) grounded in practical norms, or vice-versa? Are practical and epistemic norms different species of a single genus? In what way, if any, are epistemic and practical norms unified?
