CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Doxastic Agency and Epistemic Responsibility, 2-3 Jun 2014, Bochum, GERMANY

Workshop: Doxastic Agency & Epistemic Responsibility
When: 02.-03. June 2014
Where: Beckmanns Hof, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts who are working in the 
areas of doxastic agency, belief-revision theory, epistemic deontologism, and 
epistemic justification, and to discuss recent advances regarding the interplay 
between doxastic agency and epistemic responsibility. The workshop addresses 
questions such as: do we have the same kind of control over our beliefs as we 
have over our actions, what kind of control do we have over our doxastic 
attitudes and how is epistemic responsibility related to notions such as 
epistemic justification and practical responsibility?
