Katia Vavova

Associate Professor of Philosophy; on leave 2021-2022

Katia Vavova works primarily at the intersection of epistemology and ethics. She is interested in what counts as evidence of our own error and how we should accommodate that evidence when we get it. Some recent work focuses on how we should respond to disagreement with people whose opinions we respect (answer: with humility), and whether our evolutionary origins should make us doubt our moral beliefs (answer: they shouldn’t).
