Description

The Department of Philosophy is very pleased to be hosting this year’s annual conference of the Royal Institute of Philosophy. The theme this year is ‘Harms and Wrongs in Epistemic Practice’. How we engage in practices of knowledge acquisition, transmission, and related activities; the personal traits that help or hinder these activities; and the social institutions that facilitate or impede them, are of central importance to our lives as individuals and as participants in social and political activities. In the past decade, sustained philosophical attention has turned to the various ways in which this practice can go awry, and the epistemic, moral, and political harms and wrongs that follow. The aim of this conference is to draw attention to the full range of these harms and wrongs. We hope to bring together a range of theorists working on a diverse variety of relevant topics in order to spark new insights and forge new connections. This conference has been generously supported by the Royal Institute of Philosophy and the Analysis Trust.
