Under the auspices of SILFS and SIFA the 4th Urbino Summer School in Epistemology will be held from 29 August to 1 September.
The goal of the four days in-person Summer School is to provide an opportunity for highly motivated graduate students (or even advanced undergraduate students), and early-career researchers to learn, discuss and exchange ideas about current epistemological issues in close contact with internationally renowned experts.
There will be two kinds of sessions on each of the four days, i.e. lectures in the morning, and parallel group sessions in the afternoon.
The lectures will be delivered by four leading experts in the field, and will focus on both general and specific aspects of their current work. Each lecture will comprise approximately 45-50 minutes of presentation, and 20 minutes for Q&A.
Each group session will be led by a different lecturer, and will take a laboratory format. The topics dealt with are intended to be broad in scope – e.g. they might include Naturalism in Epistemology; Methodology and Meta-epistemology; Epistemic Contextualism and its rivals; virtue epistemology and reliabilism – in order to allow the participants to engage in open discussion, based on specific texts read in advance. A reading list will be provided in due course by the speakers.
Each student will hence have the opportunity to attend 16 lectures and 4 group sessions during the 4 days. Of course, there will be ample room for intellectual and philosophical exchanges outside of these academic activities, in the beautiful setting of late summer evenings offered by Urbino.
