Normativity and Reasoning V



WHEN January 17-19, 2017
9am - 5pm EST WHERE New York WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute
By Invitation Interested scholars please contact

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?
