Workshop: Normative Notions Formalized (2 - 3 August)

This workshop will explore the use of formal tools (e.g. from epistemic logics or deontic logics) to address philosophical problems concerning rationality or justification, obligations and permissions (both epistemic and practical oughts and cans), entitlement to believe/act and related notions. Formalizations of such normative notions and the principles involving them are supposed to clarify issues in epistemology and ethics, as well as show us possible solutions to paradoxes and other problems in those areas of investigation.
