You can learn about the program here.
During the break, we usually host a small internal workshop. Everyone is welcome to attend. As the workshop is pre-read, please contact Moritz at moritz.schulz[at]uni-hamburg[dot]de for getting access to the papers. This summer’s schedule looks like this:
10-11:30 Patricia Rich, “The Logic of Probabilistic Knowledge”
The Emmy-Noether group hosts a small internal workshop to connect some of the research going on in Hamburg.
The programme will be this:
10:15-10:30: Welcoming coffee.
12:00-13:15: Jacques Vollet (Hamburg/Geneva), “The necessity of knowledge for action and the excuse manœuvre”
Patricia and Moritz speak at the Glasgow-Hamburg Workshop (10-11th of February).
Patricia has visited the Logic and Cognition Department of Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou for two weeks to discuss research topics, hosted by Dr. Hailin Liu. She gave two lectures, one on strategic reasoning in social epistemology, and one on foundational issues in Epistemic Decision Theory.
New research issues related to our project’s topics were also discussed. The department in Sun Yat-sen has strong research focuses in game and decision theory — particularly from the normative perspective which is most important to philosophers — and in Bayesian epistemology. They were therefore especially interested to discuss the ways in which a knowledge-based approach to epistemology and a knowledge norm for action might influence our interpretation and selection of decision-theoretic norms.
Our research group is proud to organize the current Ringvorlesung at the Philosophy Department of the University of Hamburg. For this winter term 2017/2018 the lecture series is entitled Gute Entscheidungen – good decisions. We will have the pleasure of welcoming international experts in order to talk about issues in decision-making from various perspectives including legal, medical, psychological and of course philosophical. The talks are not only open to students and staff – the general public is also warmly invited!
