Philosophy Café

A monthly discussion about things philosophic.

Join us for the next meeting on Monday evening, December 14th at 5:00. 

December’s Philosophy Café topic: Data and Knowledge. Technology, especially the internet, has made more and more data available to individuals, but has that availability improved the quality of their knowledge? To prepare for the discussion, we offer two short articles:

Phil Klay, “Human Experience Will Not Be Quantified”, 2020,  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/07/opinion/sunday/data-science-limits.html

L. J. Elkin, “Data Analysis, Models and Knowledge”, 2013, https://aphilosopherstake.com/2013/02/21/data-analysis-models-and-knowledge-applied-epistemology/
