Knowledge and Understanding Seminar
By Zoom

Speaker: Michael Hannon (Nottingham)

Title: 'Empathetic Understanding in Politics'

Mike will present his paper "Empathetic Understanding in Politics". ​
Abstract: ​
"Epistemic democracy is standardly characterized in terms of “aiming at truth”. This presupposes a veritistic conception of epistemic value, according to which truth is the fundamental epistemic goal. I will raise two objections to the standard (veritistic) account of epistemic democracy, focusing specifically on deliberative democracy. I then propose a version of deliberative democracy that is grounded in non-veritistic epistemic goals. In particular, I argue that deliberation is valuable because it facilitates empathetic understanding. I claim that empathetic understanding is an epistemic good that doesn’t have truth as its primary goal." ​
Mike will talk for around 30 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A session after a quick break. The whole session will probably run a bit shorter than usual, ending at approximately 4.30pm. ​

Knowledge and Understanding Seminar
By Zoom

Speaker: Naomi Eilan (Warwick)

Title: 'Knowing and Understanding Other People'

Abstract​
What is to know someone? The question is rarely considered as a separate issue in epistemology, though it arises in many guises in everyday life. Grammatically, it is a form of objectual or relational knowledge. But is this grammar just skin deep? In the first part of the talk I lay out what I take to be fairly common sense characterisations of our knowledge of people, all of which suggest that is has a sui generis form not shared with any other kinds of knowledge, including other kinds of objectual knowledge. In the second part I gesture very briefly at the potential implications of putting such knowledge centre stage when considering other issues, such as: the kind of understanding we employ when thinking about people; the relation between knowledge and the emotions, knowledge and ethics, and self-knowledge. ​
