Fifth Cologne Summer School in Philosophy

The Fifth Cologne Summer School in Philosophy on

“New Perspectives in Epistemology”

will take place in Cologne, August 23 – 27, 2010. This year’s visiting
professor will be Ernest Sosa (Rutgers University, USA). The main
focus is the intersection of epistemology, theory of action and
philosophy of language. We will discuss foundational issues in
epistemology (the analysis of knowledge and justification, the
controversy between internalism and externalism), as well as more
specific issues in the current debate: virtue epistemology, knowledge
as a norm of assertion, is there a normative link between knowledge
and action?, intuitions and armchair philosophy, the philosophy of
disagreement, and epistemic agency. The Summer School mainly aims at
professional philosophers 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 brief letter of motivation where you
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.

Please send your online application to the following email address:
