Keynote speakers

Hélène Landemore (Yale)

Kai Spiekermann (LSE)


This year’s graduate conference of the Vienna Forum for Analytic Philosophy (WFAP) will concern itself with matters of democracy and rationality. How rational is democracy and how democratic is what rationality requires? Some argue that it is epistemically justified to accumulate preferences or beliefs democratically. Some argue that it is not, but that democracy is justifiable on moral or political grounds. Some doubt that it is rational to vote, others don’t, and yet others wonder what “democratic” means in the first place and which method of allocating preferences or judgments should be regarded as democratic rather than others.
