Date: 19 - 22 August 2019
Location: Florianopolis, Brazil
Deadline: Saturday 20 April 2019

Knowledge has attracted the attention of philosophers since their earliest speculations. And in the second half of 20th century English language philosophy witnessed the revival of careful investigation on classical questions as to the nature, structure, and limits of knowledge, as well as its distribution in social groups. The 11th Principia International Symposium has as its main theme the contemporary discussions in Theory of Knowledge, under the heading The Quest for Knowledge.

We welcome contributions that address any aspect of knowledge and other epistemic concepts, as well as critical assessments of historical and contemporary stances on the matter. Contributed papers to the symposium may be written in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish.
