The Expression of Knowledge: Epistemicity and Beyond

The goal of this symposium is to extend the notion of expression of knowledge even further to include any possible way of referring to how and why we know what we know. This is not to diminish the relevance of epistemicity, but rather to broaden the perspective, and in so doing also to examine the interplay of these categories with other ways of referring to how we manage knowledge linguistically. In other words, our goal is to arrive at a holistic view of knowledge expression.
