The London Lectures: Sandford C. Goldberg - The Promise and Pitfalls of Online ‘Conversations’

Friday 7th February 2020 5:45pm - 7:15pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

We’re delighted to be teaming up with author and philosopher Julian Baggini and the Royal Institute of Philosophy to bring you The London Lectures—a series of wide-ranging talks by experts in the field of Social Epistemology.


How Do We Know? The Social Dimension of Knowledge


Knowledge is often thought of as something that we each individually have: something inside our own minds. But our knowledge depends on other people's testimony and expertise. And what we know depends on what our society makes it possible for us to know, either formally or informally, through social norms and practices that suppress some ideas and privilege others.


Sanford C. Goldberg
The Promise and Pitfalls of Online ‘Conversations’


Good conversations are one of the great joys of life. Online (social media) ‘conversations’ rarely seem to make the grade. In this talk Sandford C. Goldberg, Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University, uses tools from philosophy in an attempt to illuminate what might be going wrong.


Sanford C. Goldberg is Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University.  His most recent book is Conversational Pressure (Oxford University Press).
