Workshop: Costs and Benefits of Imperfect Cognitions

May 8, 2014 - May 9, 2014

Two day workshop on the ‘Costs and Benefits of Imperfect Cognitions’ organized by Professor Lisa Bortolotti and Ema Sullivan- Bissett as part of the AHRC funded Fellowship on ‘The Epistemic Innocence of Imperfect Cognition’.

The Workshop will be one of the means by which the Epistemic Innocence project interim results are disseminated, and will promote exchange between philosophers and psychologists on the potential pragmatic and epistemic benefits and costs of beliefs, memories, implicit biases, and explanations.

It will also be a venue for Imperfect Cognitions network members to meet and talk about their research, and think about potential areas for future collaboration.

The registration fee (including refreshments and lunches, not including conference dinner and accommodation) is:

  • free for Imperfect Cognitions network members
  • £30 for other delegates. Please go to the online booking form and register by 15th March 2014. Due to the venue and the format, participation is strictly limited to 60 delegates including speakers.

Discounts may be available for University of Birmingham staff and students. Bursaries may be available for graduate students. Please email Ema Sullivan- Bissett to register your interest.
