2. Knowledge and its boundaries: on what one must be silent?

The second workshop — “Knowledge and its boundaries: on what one must be silent?” will consider different types of knowledge (science, humanities, philosophy and theology) in relation to the problem of (1) defining the criteria of the truth and (2) different standards of justified belief in sciences, humanities, philosophy and theology. It seems as if different types of knowledge use different criteria of the truth. If so, what conceptions of truth are used in different types of knowledge? Does it mean that scientist must be silent of the type of truth which she does not use in her research?
