Dr. Michael Bishop
Florida State University
Título de ponencia:
“Para razonar mejor, no tenemos que aprender mejores formas de razonar"
Resumen de ponencia:
Michael Bishop is Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University. His research focuses on two main issues that are central to how people live their lives. The first is how we ought to reason about the world. He has written numerous articles on this topic. With J.D. Trout, Bishop wrote Epistemology and the Psychology of Human Judgment (Oxford 2005), which argued for Strategic Reliabilism: Our reasoning is better to the extent it's more reliable, cost-effective, and focused on significant problems. Bishop is currently writing a book about the practical advice Strategic Reliabilism offers to people who want to reason more rationally. The second focus of Bishop's research is happiness and well-being. He wrote The Good Life: Unifying the Philosophy and Psychology of Well-Being (Oxford 2015), which argued for a network theory of well-being: Your life is going well for you when the good things in your life today have a settled tendency to bring you more good things tomorrow. Bishop is currently writing a book about the practical advice the network theory offers to people who want to promote their well-being. Bishop lives in Tallahassee with his wife, three boys, mother-in-law, and more dogs than he's really comfortable with.
