Workshop: Attitudes in Context

01.08.2017, by Sibylle Classen

Universität Regensburg, Germany, September 14th and 15th, 2017

“Attitudes in Context” is an interdisciplinary workshop with philosophers and psychologists on recent developments and problems in the theory of attitudes. Philosophical debates on the nature of attitudes – triggered by phenomena of behavioral inconsistency – have received novel input from psychological methods of measuring attitudes. In turn, the debate on techniques of measuring attitudes in psychology has led to discussions of foundational issues in attitude theory. This workshop creates a shared floor for discussing attitude theory and recent empirical results.
