What principles of rationality govern credences, beliefs, values, and so on? To what formal rules might those principles conform? And what, more generally, is the connection between formal and non-formal methods in philosophy? These questions, and others like them, have received considerable attention from philosophers in recent decades. The purpose of this conference—which is part of a larger series of conferences in the philosophy department at NUS—is to bring researchers together, to facilitate discussion of these issues in formal epistemology.
