Epistemic Feelings and Metacognition

Researchers working on metacognition, problem solving, decision-making, metamemory and rationality have coined the term “epistemic feeling” to refer to a particular kind of experience that one undergoes when confronted with cognitive tasks. Examples include the feeling of knowing and of forgetting, the feeling of confidence or of uncertainty, the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon, and others.

This workshop brings together researchers from philosophy, psychology and cognitive neuroscience trying to further understand these phenomena.

We are very sad to report that Peter Goldie died of cancer this week.

His death is a great loss and our thoughts are with his family and friends.
