29-30 September 2011, 1st Pittsburgh-Tilburg workshop on "Formal Epistemology meets Experimental Philosophy" (FEMEP 2011), Tilburg, The Netherlands

Date: 29-30 September 2011
Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands
Deadline: 1 May 2011

Over the years, the methodological toolbox of philosophers of science has widened considerably. Today, formal and experimental methods importantly complement more traditional methods such as conceptual analysis and case studies. So far, however, there has not been much interaction between the corresponding communities. The working assumption of this workshop is that philosophy of science can gain a lot from combining formal and experimental studies.

This workshop aims to explore the relation between formal and experimental approaches to the philosophy of science. We invite meta-theoretical papers, but especially papers that fruitfully combine both methods to problems from the philosophy of science. This first Pittsburgh-Tilburg workshop will pay special attention to the philosophy of the social sciences, but a focus on other subfields of philosophy of science is also welcome.
