Dive in

We regularly host renowned speakers, reading groups, conferences, workshops, and colloquia.

The Robert R. Chambers Conference

“Epistemic Norms & Social Norms”
April 13th and 14th, 2018
Bailey Library, Andrews Hall, Room 228-229

Epistemologists have traditionally proposed principles for assessing individual claims to knowledge. But perhaps these epistemic principles reflect norms that are, in fact, socially instilled. This year's Chambers Conference is devoted to exploring the extent to which epistemic norms can be understood as a kind of social norm.
