UEA Philosophers’ research has contributed to various issues in epistemology. As with the philosophy of language, many of these issues are approached with equal sensitivity to traditional philosophical concerns, such as normativity and justification, and the significance of empirical research for the familiar topics. Befitting such scope, our interests range from Plato to the most recent psychological findings.
