Canadian Society for Epistemology

The digital age poses new challenges for epistemology. Digital technologies have become central to how we form, revise, and maintain our beliefs. How should we approach this recent development as epistemologists? What is the epistemological significance of our increasing reliance on anonymous online sources, social media, personalized news feeds, and search engines? What does the widespread use of AI and opaque algorithms mean for our lives as knowers, testifiers, and reasoners? Do new epistemic responsibilities arise in the digital world? How can we, as epistemologists, contribute to making sense of these developments? These are some of the questions we’d like to discuss at this year’s annual meeting of the Canadian Epistemological Society.

Karen Frost-Arnold is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

The languages of the symposium are English and French. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
