Overview

Knowledge and action have long been central topics of philosophical inquiry. This workshop aims to explore the connections between these two notions. Does action—or, perhaps, special kinds of action, such as intentional or skilled action—require knowledge, perhaps also of a special kind? Conversely, what is the place of action in a theory of knowledge? Should we think of the acquisition of knowledge as a kind of skill? Or should we perhaps think of knowledge itself (or maybe just some kinds of knowledge) as an ability?
