New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018

PHIL 1.14 Knowledge, Truth, and Power

How does and how should social position – race, gender, class – affect our beliefs? What roles does trust play, and ought it to play, in knowledge? How is power implicated in what we can know and in who can be epistemic authorities? Are some agents unjustly epistemically disadvantaged, and if so, how? How ought we to shape our communal interpretive resources? Social epistemology is the study of socially shared beliefs. Some of its core concerns include testimony, disagreement, and the nature of group commitment.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
