LUIQ in network funded by the Leverhulme Trust

The project “The Scientific Approach to Epistemology” will be funded by a Leverhulme Trust International Network Grant.

The network involves research groups in Bristol (Bristol University, Richard Pettigrew, PI), Groningen (the Rijksuniversiteit, Jan-Willem Romeijn), Lund (LUIQ, Erik J. Olsson), Munich (LMU/MCMP, Stephan Hartmann), Pittsburgh (CMU, Kevin Zollman) and Tilburg (Tilburg University, Jan Sprenger).

The research supplements traditional methods in epistemology with (i) mathematical modeling, (ii) empirical experimentation and (iii) computer simulations. Five conferences are planned for 2015-2017.
