Engaging with empirical studies as a philosopher

Organizers: Caroline Bollen & Anna van Oosterzee

We would like to invite you to a workshop day on the theme: the interpretation of empirical studies and what to do with them as a philosopher.

While both academic literature, a scientific paper has vast differences from a philosophical one. Citing, interpreting, and discussing findings across disciplines can be difficult to navigate. In this workshop day we will reflect on best practices, pitfalls and methods to read, understand, and work with empirical literature.

The event is for every researcher in ESDiT who engages (or plans to) with empirical literature.

The day will consist of several lectures from external speakers and plenary reflection.
