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.
