Workshop 2014

Responsibility – The Epistemic Dimension I

When: 28-29 April 2014
Where: VU University Amsterdam, De Boelelaan 1105, 2E-53

Inquiries into responsibility often concerned problems of control and freedom. Recently, however, philosophers have turned their attention to the epistemic dimension of responsibility. Many agree that there is an epistemic restriction on what we are responsible for. Yet the question is: what is this restriction? This workshop brings together new papers on the topic.
