King’s College London is one of the top 5 research centres for philosophy in the country. One of its particular strengths is in Epistemology. For the past few years, we’ve been running a fortnightly normativity seminar. This seminar provides the opportunity to discuss recent research in epistemology and ethical theory done by visiting speakers and members of our staff. We’ve also made an impressive number of junior and senior appointments that have strengthened this particular area.
Maria Alvarez, Maria Rosa Antognazza, Bill Brewer, John Callanan, Julien Dutant, Ellen Fridland, David Galloway, Sacha Golob, Clayton Littlejohn, Eliot Michaelson, David Owens, David Papineau, Matthew Parrott, Shaul Tor, Sherri Roush, Matthew Soteriou, and Shaul Tor have all recently published work in epistemology. This work covers a wide range of topics (e.g., traditional epistemological problems, discussions of epistemology in the history of philosophy, issues at the interface of epistemology and philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and practical reason). Because of this overlap of interests, King’s has become a fantastic place to do epistemology.
