Anna-Maria Asunta Eder is Assistant Professor (wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin) at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Cologne. Her research focuses on debates in epistemology, general philosophy of science, and metaphilosophy. In epistemology she works at the intersection of formal, social, and traditional epistemology. Her research encompasses epistemic disagreement, epistemic normativity, epistemic conflicts, theories of justification, of evidential support and of higher-order evidence, and the relationship between logic and reasoning. In the philosophy of science, her research centers on the aims of inquiry, and the relationship between confirmation and rationality. In metaphilosophy, she works on methods of conceptual clarification and conceptual engineering, and on the role of formal methods and idealizations in philosophy.
