The ECT Group has a broad range of interests in epistemology and cognate fields. As well as an interest in the traditional epistemological questions concerning knowledge, justification, internalism, externalism, and scepticism, members of the group have research interests concerning belief, assertion, norms, reasons, virtue, vice, epistemic injustice, cognitive bias, formal models of knowledge and belief, know-how, trust, entitlement, perception, illusion, self-knowledge, the methodology of epistemology, intuitions, the apriori, dogmatism, contextualism, relativism and epistemic modals.
