About the conference

In the sixth conference hosted by the Experimental Philosophy Group UK the aim is to provide a forum for researchers from all disciplines who are engaged in or interested in the investigation of philosophical topics using empirical methods. At this year’s conference, we intend to bring together philosophers, psychologists and social scientists whose research touches on the issue of social injustice — what it is and how it can be combated. The conference will provide a platform for knowledge exchange as well as networking and help establish new collaborative research projects.

Keynote speakers

Kimberley Brownlee (University of Warwick)

Edouard Machery (University of Pittsburgh)

Ron Mallon (Washington University in St. Louis)
