COGITO, founded in 2018 by J. Adam Carter, Christoph Kelp and Mona Simion, is a Glasgow-based Epistemology Research Group aimed at facilitating the creation and dissemination of first-rate work in contemporary analytic epistemology. Our membership includes core Philosophy faculty and PhD students working on epistemology-themed topics at Glasgow; beyond Glasgow we are affiliated internationally with the Social Epistemology Network, European Normativity Network, European Epistemology Network, and the ConceptLab.
COGITO regularly hosts major international epistemology events, holds an ongoing epistemology speaker series, and has a thriving epistemology PhD community, with students currently writing dissertations on such topics as knowledge-first epistemology, epistemology of emotions, epistemic injustice, social and collective epistemology, and epistemic vice and blame. We also regularly host visiting researchers and PhD students (contact us if you are interested in a visit).
COGITO’s principal areas of research are: social epistemology; virtue epistemology; knowledge-first epistemology; epistemic normativity; epistemology of emotions; epistemology of perception moral and political epistemology; feminist epistemology; semantics of knowledge attributions.
