Research Opportunities for Intellectual Humility Project

Call for Proposals and Applications:  The Philosophy and Theology of Intellectual Humility Project at Saint Louis University

Saint Louis University announces a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation to explore the subject of intellectual humility. The project will focus on a variety of philosophical and theological issues relevant to the topic of intellectual humility, including: virtue epistemology; regulative epistemology; peer disagreement; intellectual humility, intellectual autonomy and deference to authority; religious pluralism; divine hiddenness; intellectual humility and theological method; biases, heuristics, dual-process theories and evolution; intersubjectivity and mind reading.

This project will fund a variety of activities, including a competition for up to 16 research grants in philosophy and theology, for research between June 2014 to May 2015.

Additional funding opportunities include:

  • Two one-semester visiting faculty research fellowships at SLU, for one term in the 2014-15 academic year.
  • Four one-year postdoctoral fellowships at SLU for the 2014-15 academic year.
  • Four one-year dissertation research fellowships at SLU for the 2014-15 academic year.
  • Five external cluster groups: interdisciplinary discussion/reading groups for regular conversation on the topic of intellectual humility during the 2014-15 academic year.
  • Summer Seminar on Intellectual Humility, for 10 to 12 advanced graduate students and junior faculty (no more than 10 years past the Ph.D.) in philosophy and theology, to be held in Los Angeles, CA in the summer of 2015.

For more information on these funding opportunities, together with instructions for submitting proposals and applications, please visit The Philosophy and Theology of Intellectual Humility at Saint Louis University.

The Philosophy and Theology of Intellectual Humility project complements the activities and research occurring under Templeton’s Science of Intellectual Humility project at Fuller.

The project is directed by John Greco and Eleonore Stump, both at the Philosophy Department at Saint Louis University.
