From: Prof. Dr. Thomas Grundmann, Universität zu Köln, Germany

The Fourth Cologne Summer School in Philosophy on

“Reliabilism and Social Epistemology: Problems and Prospects”

will take place in Cologne, August 24 – 28, 2009. Our special guest this year will be Alvin Goldman (Rutgers University). The main focus will be on the intersection of epistemology, philosophy of mind, cognitive science and sociology. We will discuss foundational issues in epistemology (the analysis of knowledge and justification, the controversy between internalism and externalism), but also topics from applied epistemology (knowledge in a social world, the methodological role of intuitions). The Summer School mainly aims at professional philosophers, cognitive scientists, sociologists, and advanced graduate students.

The attendance is free, but limited to 50 participants – on the basis of motivation and qualification. Online application is possible through April 30. Please add a short letter of application where you briefly explain your academic background and your main motivation for participating in the Summer School. Soon after the deadline, we will inform you about the success of your application.
