Epistemology after Descartes: Replies to Skepticism

Depending on the research interests of participants, themes for study will include among others, Descartes and foundationalism, Critiques of Cartesian foundationalism, Modern empiricism, Enlightenment answers to skepticism, Transcendental philosophy and skepticism, skepticism and positivism in Auguste Comte, early analytical philosophy on skepticism, from Russell to Popper, Wittgenstein and philosophy of language on skepticism, naturalized epistemology, coherentism, contextualism, feminist epistemology.
