Our grants

 

The Geography of Philosophy PIs: Edouard Machery (Pitt), Stephen Stich (Rutgers), and Clark Barrett (UCLA)

We are the South African team leader of this Templeton-funded project. The project studies diversity in people’s conceptions of understanding, wisdom, and knowledge around the world, and seeks to promote cross-cultural research in cognitive science. It includes teams in eight different regions: Eastern Europe, Ecuador, India, Japan, Morocco, Peru, South Africa, and South Korea.

Epistemic Injustice, Reasons, and Agency PIs: Lubomira Radoilska (Kent) and Veli Mitova (UJ)

The project grapples with the underexplored connections between epistemic injustice and other normative concepts such as reasons and agency.This is a British Academy Newton Advanced Fellowship project.

Philosophy Dictionary for Africa PIs: Hennie Lötter, Dimpho Maponya, Veli Mitova, Josien Reijer (UJ)

The project aims at compiling a Dictionary of Philosophy in several African languages, comprising core African and Western philosophical terms. This is a grant from the University of Johannesburg.

Epistemic Injustice, Decolonisation, and Rationality PI: Veli Mitova (UJ)

The project aims at bringing into conversation decolonial theory with two hot topics in analytic epistemology – epistemic injustice and rationality. This is a grant from the University of Johannesburg, which will sponsor six postgraduate students on a research visit to the University of Zürich.
