The rationale for the workshop topic is that while open societies are prized for the social goods that they bring, they are also prized for the distinctively epistemic goods that they are meant to bring too, though very little work has been done exploring this issue. This workshop will aim to open discussion on this topic. It is timed to coincide with Alvin Goldman's delivery of the 2008 Nature of Knowledge lecture.
A provisional programme is available here. The papers by Klemens Kappel and Paul Faulkner are available here and here.
