7-8 November 2014, Canadian Society for Epistemology International Symposium "Epistemic Reasons" (CSE 2014), Sherbrooke QC, Canada

Date: 7-8 November 2014
Location: Sherbrooke QC, Canada
Deadline: 28 September 2014

Epistemic reasons ground belief: in a factual sense they are actual grounds for belief, and in a normative sense they are good grounds for belief. This year's symposium will be devoted to exploring the concept of epistemic reasons, whether factual or normative. Specific topics of presentation may include the relevance of practical interests and affective states to epistemic reasons, psychologism about epistemic reasons and its competitors, epistemic reasons in foundationalist, coherentist, and externalist frameworks, a priori epistemic reasons, epistemic reasons and testimonial knowledge, and the role of epistemic reasons in automatic vs. deliberative cognitive processes.

For more information, visit the Symposium's website at http://sce-cse.recherche.usherbrooke.ca or write to Yves Bouchard () or David Matheson ().

Authors are invited to submit a 250 word abstract (in English or in French) for a paper of 20-30 minutes reading time. The deadline for submitting an abstract is Monday September 29th. Abstracts can be submitted online.
