THE ROLES OF KNOWLEDGE
28 - 29 June 2013

The word ?know? seems to find a comfortable and colloquial equivalent in every human language,
which suggests that the concept expressed by this word plays important roles in human life and
thought. In recent years, a number of philosophers have investigated the various roles or purposes
of knowledge attributions in epistemic evaluation. This workshop seeks to advance the debate by
bringing together scholars working in epistemology and related areas. We are interested in exploring
any topics that are concerned with the roles of knowledge (or the word ?knowledge?) in human life.
