Seminar Philosophy of Evidence in Epistemology and the Law (27-28 June, Maastricht)

by Admin on June 8, 2019

On June 27th and 28th, Giada Fratantonio (Helsinki) will give a short introductory course entitled “Philosophy of Evidence in Epistemology and The Law”.

The course aims at introducing participants to current debates in philosophy of evidence law. It is composed by two lectures and one discussion session. In the first day, Giada will briefly present the main issues discussed in philosophy of evidence (e.g., the nature of evidence and evidential support) and introduce participants to philosophical puzzles and paradoxes about the standards of proof generally adopted by legal systems. In the second day, Giada will continue the discussion about standards of proof. She will examine different strategies to solve the paradoxes and discuss their plausibility.

The course is free and open to all, but registration is required given that places are limited. The course does not require any previous background in philosophy or law. Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged to participate.
