An International Conference
University of Oklahoma
March 12th-14th 2009
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn - A Scholar (1631)
While there has been a vast philosophical literature devoted to the issue of moral goodness, far less attention has been paid to the related question of epistemic goodness. And yet epistemic goodness appears as central to our epistemic lives and evaluations as moral goodness is to our moral lives and evaluations. Indeed, moral and epistemic goodness seem deeply intertwined, as our moral evaluations often seem to depend upon correlative epistemic evaluations. There is thus a strong motivation to understand what epistemic goodness amounts to.
The goal of this conference is to draw together philosophers who are working to advance this goal. The topic of the conference is “epistemic goodness", where this is construed broadly to include all work in epistemology that focuses on or explores the kind of value or normativity that is assumed to be distinctive of epistemology and epistemic evaluations. We welcome submissions addressing any such value-oriented aspects of epistemology.
