Estonian Research Council grant no 462 “Philosophical analysis of interdisciplinary research practices” 2019-2023
Horizon 2020 project "PROmoting integrity in the use of RESearch results in evidence based policy: a focus on non-medical research"
Institutional research grant (IUT): „Philosophical analysis of disagreements“
Duration: 01.01.2014 – 31.12.2019
The project is devoted to the study of disagreement as it arises in philosophy (e.g. logic, ontology), science, ethics and everyday life. The goal is to examine the nature of disagreement, to assess the implications that some seemingly dysfunctional disagreements may have for the objectivity of the topics on which they arise, and to develop strategies for the effective handling of disagreement. Accordingly, the diverse expertise of the UT Department of Philosophy will be deployed in an integrated assessment of the phenomenon from conceptual, metaphysical, and practical perspectives. The project will produce (1) conceptual clarity about the different types of disagreement and heuristics for diagnosing types of disagreement, (2) an elucidation of the metaphysical consequences implied by seemingly dysfunctional disagreements, and based on these outcomes, (3) an informed understanding of how some real-world disagreements are most effectively addressed.
