Second lecture: Relativism and Scepticism.

November 24, 2015, 19.00

RANEPA, building 2, aud. 237

Professor Kusch will discuss his recent research about forms of epistemic relativism. He will show that these forms commit themselves to the view that it is impossible to show in a neutral, non-question-begging, way that one epistemic system is epistemically superior to (all) others. He calls this view “No meta-justification”. In this talk Professor Kusch will discuss two currently popular attempts to attack “No meta-justification”.
