Workshop Normativity and Reasoning IV

By Invitation Only


Location Abu Dhabi

Reasoning seems to be a uniquely human activity; it is therefore of great philosophical significance. Yet it is not at all clear how we do it. This workshop explores our capacity to reason by focusing on the fact that reasoning is governed by norms; it can go well or badly. What are these norms? How might they be discovered, and how do they guide us? What, if anything, ultimately underwrites their authority?
