Epistemic Norms as Social Norms

Epistemic Norms as Social Norms

Workshop with Laura Frances Callahan, Peter Graham, Daniel Star, Deborah Tollefsen, Manuel Vargas, and Natalia Washington.

At this workshop we will focus on several issues in social epistemology that concern the intersection of epistemic and social normativity.  These include questions about  responsibility and accountability for beliefs and biases, epistemic injustice, the moral psychology of ignorance, divisions of epistemic labor, intellectual virtues and vices of groups, and the nature and source of of epistemic normativity.
