Colloquium- Prof. Daniel Greco (Yale University)

Thursday, November 12, 2020, 03:00pm - 05:00pm

Rutgers Philosophy Fall 2020 Colloquium


Modest Modeling


Prof. Daniel Greco (Yale University)


Idealization and model-building are ubiquitous in epistemology. But while the practice of model-building in epistemology is old, metaepistemological reflection on its significance is not. In a manuscript in progress--Idealization in Epistemology: A Modest Modeling Approach, I argue that the fact that epistemologists build models isn't merely an interesting observation that can leave first-order epistemological debates untouched. Rather, once we view epistemology through the lens of idealization and model-building, the landscape looks quite different.
