23-27 August 2010, 5th Cologne Summer School in Philosophy: "New Perspectives in Epistemology", Cologne, Germany

Date: 23-27 August 2010
Location: Cologne, Germany

The Fifth Cologne Summer School in Philosophy on "New Perspectives in Epistemology" will take place in Cologne, August 23 - 27, 2010. This year's visiting professor will be Ernest Sosa (Rutgers University, USA). The main focus is the intersection of epistemology, theory of action and philosophy of language. We will discuss foundational issues in epistemology (the analysis of knowledge and justification, the controversy between internalism and externalism), as well as more specific issues in the current debate: virtue epistemology, knowledge as a norm of assertion, is there a normative link between knowledge and action?, intuitions and armchair philosophy, the philosophy of disagreement, and epistemic agency. The Summer School mainly aims at professional philosophers and advanced graduate students.

The attendance is free, but limited to 50 participants - on the basis of motivation and qualification. Online application is possible through April 30. For more information visit the website at http://www.summerschoolphilosophy.uni-koeln.de/ or contact the organizers at
