Experimental philosophy is a relatively recent, but rapidly expanding area of research. Experimental Philosophy Group UK provides a forum for UK-based researchers from all disciplines engaged in using experimental methods to investigate philosophical topics. Empirical evidence is relevant to many philosophical debates and experimental philosophers design and conduct experiments that address specific questions of philosophical significance.
We hold regular workshops in UK cities including Bristol, Nottingham, Sheffield, and Oxford. Our first workshop was in 2010 and we have held yearly workshops ever since.
