Hi everyone,

We're pleased to welcome everyone to the first Sydney Uni department seminar of the year, this Wed, Mar 2 in the Muniment Room, from 1-2:30pm, followed by teatime.

The speaker is Matthew Kopec (Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics), and his title and abstract are below:

TITLE: A Pluralistic Account of Epistemic Rationality

ABSTRACT: In this essay, I aim to motivate and defend a pluralistic view of epistemic rationality. At the core of the view is the notion that epistemic rationality is essentially a species of practical rationality put in the service of various epistemic goals. First, I sketch some closely related views that have appeared in the literature. Second, I present my preferred version of the view and sketch some of its benefits. Third, I defend the view against some prominent objections offered by Thomas Kelly and Selim Berker against related views . Last, I raise some distinct worries that might linger and sketch some possible ways one might address them.
