Back from Epistemic Agency conference in Geneva
Hats off to Pascal Engel, Anne Meylan and Julien Dutant for running an outstanding and instructive conference (Epistemic Agency, Geneva) this past weekend, which was preceded by (in my opinion) an equally stimulating three days of the John Greco Lectures. Greco's new book--Knowledge as True Belief Through Ability--promises to be excellent. And additionally, I think the University of Geneva and its Episteme programme (particularly because of Pascal Engel) is developing into a happening place for epistemic normativity; at least, it would be nuts to draw any other conclusion after this past week. Word of warning, however: the Swiss are very much drawn to eating (cheese) fondu. I was cautioned that if too much is consumed, it will give you a nightmare. Skeptical, I binge-dipped from the fondu pot. The result: I dreamed I was being chased by a murderer for what seemed like eternity. (Don't try this to test it).
