On Thursday, May 15, we will have the first meeting of a joint research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Research on Structures and dynamics of knowledge and cognition. The program is available HERE.
The project itself involves five research units across the country (in Turin, Milan, Rome, Bologna, and Cagliari, respectively) and tackles central problems concerning the nature, evolution, and rational bases of scientific and ordinary credences through a variety of methods. These include theoretical modeling of rational belief change, decision, and information management, and empirical studies and laboratory experiments on reasoning and choice behavior. The expected outcome is to shed light on the emerging forms of rationality in human affairs, relying on the integration of traditional and novel methodological perspectives in philosophical inquiry.
