Cologne Summer School in Philosophy
with Jennifer Lackey

The 13th Cologne Summer School in Philosophy (CSSiP) on New Trends in Applied Epistemology takes place in Cologne from August 6 to August 10, 2018. Our special guest is Jennifer Lackey (Northwestern University). Over the last two decades Jennifer Lackey has deepened and significantly enhanced our understanding of social epistemology. In her recent work, including her forthcoming new book, she explores in detail the real-world phenomena related to knowledge in a social context. The Summer School will specifically focus on the following themes:

- Collective Epistemology and Group Belief

- Social Knowing

- Lies and Bullshit

- False Confessions and Credibility

- Epistemology of Punishment

The Summer School mainly aims at professional philosophers and graduate students, but anyone is welcome to apply.

Attendance is free but limited to 50 participants – to be selected on the basis of motivation and qualification. Online application is possible through May 1. Please supply a short letter that sketches your academic background and main motivation for participating in the Summer School. If you are interested in giving a brief presentation (approx. 20 minutes) related to Lackey’s work, please also send an abstract of no more than 1,000 words. We will inform you about the result of your application soon after the deadline.
