12-13 May 2007, Linguistics and Epistemology, Aberdeen, Scotland

Date: 12-13 May 2007
Location: Aberdeen, Scotland
Deadline: 27 November 2006

One of the most striking developments in recent epistemological theorizing is the use of linguistic data and arguments to defend epistemological positions. Famous epistemological positions that are motivated and disputed in this way are contextualism, subject sensitive invariantism, and contrastivism. The overall aim of this conference is to bring together outstanding researchers working in this area of epistemology to both discuss the validity of the 'linguistic method' and bring this method into actual practice.

For more information, see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/philosophy/events/lingepist/ or contact Martijn Blaauw at .

Papers are now invited on any topic that is relevant to the conference theme. We are interested in papers that discuss whether using linguistic data/arguments really is a desirable way of doing epistemology, as well as in papers that actually bring the method of using linguistic data/arguments to argue for epistemological positions into practice. Abstracts should be submitted to the conference organiser by email or snailmail by November 27th 2006.
