Social and Applied Epistemology Series: Ernest Sosa (Rutgers)
As part of our annual Applied and Social Epistemology Lecture Series, this fall Ernie Sosa (Rutgers) will be giving three online seminars devoted to his forthcoming book,
Friday October 16th, 3-5pm (Colloquium)
Monday October 26th, 1-3pm (Commentator: Duncan Pritchard)
Monday November 2nd, 1-3pm (Commentator: Annalisa Coliva)
The subject of the three lectures will be chapters from Sosa’s forthcoming Oxford UP book, 'Epistemic Explanations: A Theory of Telic Normativity, and What it Explains’. The colloquium presentation will be a regular talk (devoted to chapter 2 of the book, 'Gnoseology and Intellectual Ethics'), but the other two sessions will be a pre-read (devoted to chapters 7 & 8, 'Knowledge, Default, and Skepticism’ & 'Grades of Knowledge’, and chapter 9, 'Reflection and Security’). Professor Sosa has kindly made a draft of his book manuscript available to us *for this specific purpose only* (i.e., not for wider sharing), and this is attached below.
