The Workshop

Venue and Date

The one-day workshop takes place at the University of Cologne, Germany, on September 21, 2018. It is a satellite workshop of GAP.10. (GAP.10 ends one day earlier.)

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together epistemologists who work on higher-order evidence. We are especially interested in debates concerning:

  • conceptions of higher-order evidence
  • epistemic akrasia
  • evidence of evidence
  • higher-order evidence and deductive reasoning
  • higher-order evidence and defeaters
  • higher-order evidence and disagreement
  • higher-order evidence and suspension of judgment
  • higher-order evidence, propositional and doxastic justification
  • modeling higher-order evidence
