This course is for Master’s students interested in the formal-logical analysis of social-informational phenomena, including the wisdom of crowds, informational cascades, and pluralistic ignorance.

This course considers various forms of communication, observations and other actions that can change both individual knowledge/beliefs and group behaviour across networks of interacting agents. We focus on examples from the literature and their analysis based on theoretical tools and models used in Logic, Social Epistemology and Network Theory.

Detailed information on the course will be available soon.


The course topic is related to the Academy Colloquium on Reasoning in Social Context (31 May 2018 – 2 June 2018).
