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.
