Project Starting: January 1st 2021
KnowledgeLab is taking off in the beginning of next year, stay tuned!
This work package will develop a knowledge-first methodological approach for social epistemology. Knowledge first frameworks - first proposed in Tim Williamson's 'Knowledge and Its Limits' (2000) - take knowledge as central to epistemological affairs and venture to analyse other epistemic standings in terms of knowledge. KnowledgeLab develops a knowledge-first framework for social epistemological issues, and novel, knowledge-first accounts of the epistemology of testimony, disagreement, groups and the media. It starts the analysis with the epistemic function of our social epistemic interactions - that of generating knowledge - and it identifies the normative structure that is borne out by this function. More details soon.
