Conférence co-organisée avec / Co-organized talk with Fillosophie
Some approaches to social epistemology treat the social dimension of knowledge as a contingent feature of cognitive life. This talk will argue that such an approach misses a deeper social dimension of our cognitive lives. Critical contextual empiricism puts interaction at the center of human knowledge.
