Epistemic and Practical Normativity:
Meta-Normative Problems and Proposals

Friday 12th June 2015
University of Southampton

Philosophy at Southampton will host the third workshop of the AHRC-funded ‘Normativity: Epistemic and Practical’ project on Friday the 12th June 2015.

The workshop will focus on the nature of normative judgment and the place of norms in the natural world. In particular, it will consider whether the theories which ethicists have offered of ethical discourse and its subject matter – e.g. expressivism, fictionalism, non-naturalism – can be applied to the epistemic domain and what this might tell us about both.
