11-15 August 2014, Epistemic Logic for Individual, Social, and Interactive Epistemology, Tübingen, Germany

Date: 11-15 August 2014
Location: Tübingen, Germany
Deadline: 8 March 2014

Historically, with its origins in philosophy, epistemic logic promised to illuminate traditional issues of epistemology, the theory of knowledge. In recent years, epistemic logic has been making good on that promise, with important new applications not only to individual epistemology, a traditional focus of philosophers for the last two-and-a-half thousand years, but also in social epistemology, the more recent investigation of the social dimensions of knowledge and information flow, as well as interactive epistemology, the study of knowledge and belief in strategic, game-theoretic situations.

During five 90-minute sessions, the ELISIEM workshop will feature presentations covering the latest applications of epistemic logic to individual, social, and interactive epistemology, putting work at this fascinating intersection on the map of interdisciplinary activities in logic.
