Future Fundamentals of Social Epistemology


The Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective (SERRC) announces "Future Fundamentals of Social Epistemology" a conference to be held from 28 July to 1 August 2014 at Virginia Tech.

We will raise, examine, and set forth a vital intellectual agenda for conducting a comprehensive social epistemology. We will address how to realize our agenda. Given our future fundamentals, we will examine:

  • Promoting the practice of social epistemology;
  • Studying knowledge production from a normative perspective;
  • Discerning the means and moments to expand the horizons of the human condition;
  • Understanding the complementarity between internal and external elements of cognition;
  • Promoting human risk taking in the future welfare state;
  • Performing empirical social epistemology;
  • Transforming the relationship between social epistemology and Science and Technology Studies;
  • Apprehending how multiple individuals become aware of the same phenomenon.
