The theoretical aspects of disagreements in fields such as ontology, logic, epistemology, and ethics have already received extensive treatment in the philosophical literature. There are a plethora of views debated at an increased level of sophistication at a very high level of abstraction (e.g. conciliationist vs steadfast views in the epistemology of disagreement). What is much less discussed are the practical consequences of these theoretical models of disagreement. The conference “Disagreements: from Theory to Practice” aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice and inquire into the implications of theoretical positions for real-life disagreements.
