4th Cologne Summer School

The Fourth Cologne Summer School in Philosophy on

"Reliabilism and Social Epistemology: Problems and Prospects"
Cologne, Germany
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.
