Welcome to Evidence Dialogues

All of us draw inferences from evidence. Open a newspaper anywhere in the world and you will probably find evidence-related items on every page. In recent years, major transnational events such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Covid-19 and climate change have had problems of evidence at their centre, as do many domestic, personal, and work problems and choices.

Yet the analysis of evidential inferences as such has only been a sustained focus of attention in a few academic disciplines, including Law, Epistemology, History, and Evidence-based Medicine. The purpose of Evidence Dialogues is to help to remedy this in a stimulating and enjoyable way. This project aims to:

  • help to develop a recognized multi-disciplinary field of evidence;
  • improve interdisciplinary and cross-occupation communication, fertilization and synthesis in respect of evidence;
  • provide a interdisciplinary forum for exchanges of ideas and information and discussing issues and challenges in relation to evidence in different contexts, disciplines and areas of practice.
  • transcend hard/soft, STEM/Humanities/Social sciences divides; with room for robust, but respectful, debates and disagreements;
  • entertainment will only be a by-product of this initiative.
