Aims, contents and method of the course
This course is a seminar introducing you to a (partly) new area in epistemology: an area bringing together epistemology and political philosophy. (In some ways, this starts from, and generalizes, issues that have been important in feminist epistemology and critical race studies.) Issues to be discussed will include: epistemic bubbles, social media deception, "white lies" and "white ignorance", epistocratic paternalism, democracy and epistemology, epistemic pathologies, polarization, deep disagreement. -- We shall follow a conventional scheme for conducting a seminar, with student presentations and discussions.
Assessment and permitted materials
Regular attendance and participation in the seminar; written comments on the papers to be discussed, an essay of 18-20 pages.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Regular attendance and participation. Regular written coments on the reading. Clear presentation. Well-argued essay.
Will be uploaded on moodle
