This workshop is devoted to connections between inconsistency toleration and scientific pluralism. Some views on the topic have recently been analyzed in the HumanaMente Special Issue Beyond Toleration? Inconsistency and Pluralism in the Empirical Sciences (available at: http://www.humanamente.eu/
We welcome submissions addressing the following and related questions:
(i) What are the relevant connections between scientific pluralism and inconsistency toleration?
(ii) Do specific types of scientific pluralism entail specific types of inconsistency toleration commitments? Do particular inconsistency toleration commitments entail particular kinds of scientific pluralism?
(iii) In which ways is it possible to characterize and understand inconsistency toleration from a pluralist perspective?
(iv) Do the same inconsistency toleration mechanisms underlie all cases of inconsistency toleration in specific sciences?
(v) Do all scientific disagreements involve or entail actual contradictions in scientific practice?
