Title: Awareness in Logic and Epistemology.
Abstract. In this talk, I will present the main topics of my book ‘Awareness in Logic and Epistemology. A conceptual schema and logical study of the underlying main epistemic concepts.’ (for more information see https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030696054).
Inspired by the contemporary approaches to the dynamics of information that include the notion of ‘awareness’ (and similar concepts) in their system, I have developed a conceptual schema that analyses, from a theoretical and/or philosophical point of view, the main notions these systems employ.
During the talk I will include a general overview of the main topics (theoretical and formal) that this book entail and will enter into more detail while presenting the conceptual schema centred in the notions of ‘Awareness’ (-of and -that), ‘(explicit) Knowledge’ and ‘Justification’.
My research interests pursue as their main goal the connections between Epistemic Logic and Epistemology as well as between the formal approaches in the dynamics of information and the Philosophy of Logic.
