16 November 2017, Workshop "Reflective Equilibrium in Logic & Philosophy of Science", Bern, Switzerland

Date: Thursday 16 November 2017
Location: Bern, Switzerland

The main idea of 'reflective equilibrium' is that both our commitments to the validity of inferences as well as our logical theories are justified if they agree with each other, and that this agreement results from a process of mutually adjusting commitments and theories that try to systematize them. This idea was later discussed and further developed in different fields, most notably ethics, but also in theories of rationality, general epistemology, and philosophy of science. The aim of the workshop is to discuss and reassess the method of reflective equilibrium in light of recent developments and applications in logic and philosophy of science.
