The 2016 Ratio Conference and 7th Conference of Experimental Philosophy UK

23–24th April 2016, University of Reading

Keynotes: Helen de Cruz, Robyn Repko Waller, Meena Dhanda, James Hampton


This event aims to encourage a greater focus upon the capacity of experimental philosophy to be applied philosophy. It brings together philosophers, psychologists and social scientists and highlights the great contribution experimental philosophy and associated fields have to make to real world issues.  The ability of experimental philosophy to inform debate and public discourse about many and various important social issues is under-appreciated and under-exercised.  A full list of confirmed speakers and titles can be found below.
