The second half of the 20th Century has witnessed the rapid growth of an approach to epistemology that gives up on the idea of a first philosophy and argues for a close partnership with sciences such as biology, psychology, cognitive science, information theory and computing. As a result of the cross-pollination of ideas, naturalised epistemology has come to include a great richness of methodologies and approaches. The workshop will bring together a number of leading experts with post-graduates and researchers. Over the five days, the speakers will lead workshop groups that will focus on issues dealing with naturalised epistemology and arising out of their work. KNEW’06 is being organised by Marcin Milkowski (PAN, CPR) and Konrad Talmont-Kaminski (UMCS, CPR).


We invite submissions (by abstract) of papers in the area of naturalised epistemology by all summer school participants. Papers dealing with work related to the work presented by the invited speakers will be given preference. Contributed papers will have a total of half an hour presentation plus discussion time. Submission (in PDF, DOC or RTF) dead-line: June 1st, 2006. Notification of acceptance: June 10th, 2006
