The Humboldt-Southampton Normativity Conference is a yearly conference on normativity, alternating between Humboldt University in Berlin and Southampton University in the UK.

The theme of the conference is normativity, where that includes, but is not limited to, issues regarding:

  • Reasoning and rationality
  • The nature of reasons
  • The relationship between reasons for action and reasons for belief
  • The relationship between practical and theoretical reasoning
  • Metaethics, including cases where those issues are also relevant for questions about the evaluation of belief

Our primary aim is to provide a forum for lively and constructive exchange amongst philosophers currently working in the field.
