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.
ECT Seminar: This is a lively and friendly weekly seminar at which members of the group pilot their research, discuss recent work in epistemology, and host talks by visiting speakers. You can find our up to date programme in the Arché Calendar. We are currently meeting each Thursday from 13:00 until 14:30. If you’d like to join us for a session or two, email Nick Kuespert at nk94 [at] st-andrews [dot] ac [dot] uk.
