“Experimental Philosophy” is a four-week college and university faculty institute for twenty-five participants, exploring experimental philosophy: the attempt to arrive at philosophical judgments by assessing the intuitions of ordinary people (as opposed to professional philosophers) regarding important philosophical questions. Experimental philosophy seeks to illuminate core philosophical questions. It does so by examining the philosophical intuitions of people other than trained academic philosophers, on the grounds that philosophers’ intuitions about such questions are not always congruent with those of non-philosophers. For example, philosophers tend not to think much about cultural diversity when they try to refine philosophical concepts, but evidence suggests that people from different cultures understand the meaning of a term like “knowledge” very differently. Furthermore, there is reason to believe that “philosophers’ intuitions in part reflect” the idiosyncratic training that philosophers receive. This institute explores issues raised by experimental philosophy—a growing subfield that requires skills (such as the ability to conduct experiments) that are not currently part of normal professional training for philosophers. The institute exposes participants to some of the best research in the subfield and enables participants to acquire a basic understanding of experimental techniques and principles. Institute director Shaun Nichols is a University of Arizona philosopher who works in the philosophy of psychology and cognitive science. His co-director, University of Utah philosopher Ron Mallon, works in social philosophy, moral psychology, and the philosophy of cognitive psychology. Assisting them are twelve outside faculty, including Michael Devitt of the City University of New York, a prominent critic of experimental philosophy.
