Characteristics of Social Epistemology
Invited editors: Pascal Engel (EHESS, Paris), Olivier Ouzilou (université de Lorraine) and Pierre Willaime (université de Lorraine)
This special issue of Philosophia Scientiæ is about the place of analytic social epistemology within the field of general analytic epistemology. Should social epistemology be seen as a new discipline, with specific methodologies and objects (such as groups or institutions)? Or should we understand this approach only as a set of new answers to the classical problems of epistemology?
Here are some topics particularly welcome:
The method to be used in social epistemology.
The naturalization of social epistemology.
The debate between preservationism and expansionism.
The development of an agent-centered social epistemology (Sosa, Greco, etc.).
The relationships between social epistemology and virtue epistemology.
Manuscripts should be submitted in English, French or German and prepared to allow for anonymous peer-reviewing. A French and English abstract should be included (200-300 words).
Articles should not exceed 7’000 words (spaces and footnotes included).
