Epistemics for Forensics

Roger Koppl has a column on forensics in the latest issue of Forbes. Reason Magazine has also picked up the story.

Roger also has an article “Epistemics for Forensics” coming out in the next issue of EPISTEME (5:2). The paper addresses problems of erroneous criminal verdicts that arise from the structure of the relationship between forensic laboratories and the courts. Roger’s work is a paradigmatic example of social epistemology’s salience to public policy. Check out some other press articles by Roger – duplicated in:

Many will recall Roger’s article from a couple of years ago EPISTEME 2:2 “Epistemic Systems” and the discussion generated by it. Here is some of the press coverage:
