The Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS)

Founded in 2007, TiLPS is recognized as one of the most vibrant and innovative centres for research in logic, epistemology, and philosophy of science. The relevant researchers for the present project are Jan Sprenger (formal epistemology), Matteo Colombo (experiments in epistemology), and Jun Lai (explanation). Sprenger will contribute expertise in the use of probability theory for modelling explanatory reasoning and disagreement resolution, with particular emphasis on reaching a rational consensus. In the multi-method spirit of the project, this contribution will be complemented by psychological experiments and agent-based simulations (Colombo).
