PHIL6112: Epistemology and Language

Key questions in epistemology, the study of knowledge and rational belief, and the philosophy of language include: What is it for a body of evidence to support a hypothesis to some degree? How should we adjust our beliefs in light of evidence about others' views? How do words manage to refer to objects and properties in the word, and not just to our own ideas and concepts? This course will engage with cutting-edge research in these areas.
