Epistemic Petrification Conference
Mon 2 July @ 12:00 pm - Tue 3 July @ 6:30 pm BSTFree
EPISTEMIC PETRIFICATION CONFERENCE
2-3 July 2018, University of Bristol
Location: Wills Physics Laboratory, Room 3.34, Tyndall Avenue, BS8 1TL
This conference brings together philosophers, psychologists, and health professionals to explore epistemic failure and petrification. Against an idealised and de-contextualised image of human epistemology, the conference will examine the role of epistemic pathology and dysfunction in philosophy and social science. This role will be placed in a developmental and social perspective, drawing inspiration from the work of Peter Fonagy and colleagues.
In particular, we hope to examine whether dysfunction and pathology may play a larger role in philosophy than so far envisaged, by looking at several case studies in philosophy, and also consider what philosophical approaches and questions may offer psychological research and practice.
Attendance is free and will include lunch and coffee on both days. There will be a number of £50 bursaries for students/unwaged wishing to attend the conference.
Accessibility: The conference offers support for those with access requirements. There are reserved parking spaces in the Hawthorne’s car park at the end of the street (on University Ave).
