Conference on Inference and Reasoning

March 16 - March 18

To infer is to draw a conclusion from some premises.  To reason is to consider what conclusion to draw from some premises.  But how, more specifically, do these acts differ from the many other mental acts that agents can perform?  In what way are these acts mental, and in what way are they acts rather than merely events?  What epistemic role do they play? This workshop will address these, and related, questions. Click here to visit the conference website.
