Summerschools Epistemology & Cognition

From 25 to 29 August 2014, the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen will host two co-located summer schools with a common theme: Epistemology and Cognition. One of the summer schools will focus on contemporary philosophy and is co-organized with the Department of Philosophy of the University of Bristol. The other summer school will have a historical focus and is co-organized with the Department of Philosophy of the Radboud University Nijmegen.
The summer schools are intended for graduate students (master’s and PhD), post-docs and early-career researchers in philosophy. Participants can follow exclusively one of the two tracks, or mix-and-match tutorials from both tracks according to their interests.
Student sessions and scholarships: we'll be offering 4 scholarships of EUR 400 (including registration fee) for the best student papers. See http://www.rug.nl/education/summer-winter-schools/summer-schools-2014/epistemology-and-cognition/course-information
