Fyrirlestur: Sókratískar kannanir
Nat Hansen heldur fyrirlestur á vegum Heimspekistofnunar Háskóla Íslands í stofu 304 í Árnagarði, 1. október kl. 15. Fyrirlesturinn nefnist "Sókratískar kannanir" („Socratic questionnaires“)
When experimental participants are given the chance to reflect and revise their initial judgments in a conversational context, their responses to some philosophical scenarios differ from responses to those same scenarios presented in a traditional static survey. This finding complicates recent findings that various manipulations of reflectiveness have no effect on participants’ judgments about philosophical scenarios. Conversational experiments also illuminate debates about how exactly participants are understanding the scenarios they read in experimental philosophy studies, in particular whether they are replacing difficult questions with questions that are more easily answered, and to what extent participants are imagining the scenarios they read in ways that differ from what is explicitly stated by experimenters. We argue that conversational experiments—“Socratic questionnaires”—should be used alongside traditional survey designs in the experimental investigation of philosophical questions.
