First, the theme

Epistemology and Ethics Seminar

Second, the theme of the introduction

      Epistemology and ethics are two important branches of contemporary analytic philosophy and two very active areas. What is common is that they all focus on evaluation; the difference is that one of the objects of evaluation is cognitive behavior and the other is social behavior. It is very interesting to compare knowledge theory with ethics. In view of this, the Department of Philosophy of Shandong University and the Department of Philosophy of the University of Southern California intend to jointly hold a seminar on knowledge theory and ethics.
