Vice Epistemology: Recent Contributions by Quassim Cassam - 15-17 April 2020


A forthcoming workshop to be held at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain, between 15-17 April 2020 will focus exclusively on the philosophical work of Quassim Cassam, and in particular the nature of intellectual vices explored by him in his recent publication Vices of the Mind: From the Intellectual to the Political (2019), which investigates intellectual vices that block the way of self-knowledge, responsible belief formation or enquiry.

Philosophers who are interested in Quassim Cassam's work are invited to submit proposals for evaluation on topics relating to Vice Epistemology, Self and Self-Knowledge, Perception, Neo-Kantian Epistemology, Conspiracy Theories and the Philosophy of Terrorism. Submissions should be no longer than 15 pages (about 5000 words) and should represent a 40-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Extended abstracts of about 2000 words will also be accepted for review. Deadline is 23 January 2020.

The workshop is sponsored by the SEFA (Spanish Society for Analytic Philosophy) and funded by the Spanish Research Agency through the research grant Intellectual Autonomy in Environments of Epistemic Dependence. See here for further information:;ccb335a.1909
