EPISOC: Epistemology and Society

From personal to distributed Knowledge

EPISOC (Epistemology and Society) is a research network whose objective is to bring together groups interested in the field of epistemology broadly conceived.

More especifically, the network is focused on epistemic problems characteristic of what we call “complex social contexts”. Individualist assumptions that have dominated traditional analytic epistemology need to be reexamined. We envisage to describe scenarios where epistemic subjects interact between each other in order to build up reliable and trustworthy knowledge-conducive practices.
