Scepticism and Justification

Scuola Superiore Studi Umanistici

COGITO Research Centre in Philosophy

under the auspices of the Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy (SIFA)

Bologna December 17-18 2010

Scuola Superiore Studi Umanistici
Via Marsala 26

In recent years the traditional issue of external world scepticism has regained center stage in contemporary debates in philosophy. This new interest has been fostered mostly by the realisation that the way we think of our perceptual experiences and of their justificatory relation with respect to our beliefs about objects in our surroundings has an important bearing on our understanding of scepticism and on how best to respond to it. The conference will, accordingly, focus on the nature of empirical justification, external world scepticism and their interrelation.
