About the project
As a researcher on this project you will seek to unify the theoretical and existential dimensions of scepticism by exploring Kierkegaard's idea that knowledge requires courage.
This project aims to:
- bring Kierkegaard’s existential epistemology into dialogue with the contemporary mainstream, in respect to the relation between the intellectual vices, such as a lack of intellectual courage, and various forms of scepticism
- examine the similarities between radical scepticism (the thought that we may know nothing about the world) and global conspiracy theories
- apply Kierkegaard’s insight that knowledge requires courage to a central challenge of our time: loss of faith in knowledge, expertise and authority
There are 2 fully funded PhD's available to work with the Principal Investigator, looking at 1 or more of these central aims.
