Welcome to the Zurich Epistemology Group on Rationality (Zegra) homepage.






It is our great pleasure to announce that the director of the ZEGRa research group, Anne Meylan (UZH) and Chris Kelp (University of Glasgow) have just been awarded a four-year FNS grant for the project “Evidence: Knowledge and Understanding” (621’808 CHF). As its title indicates, the project aims to explore a novel and unified account of the way knowledge, understanding and evidence relate to each other (read more about the project here ). The project that should begin in April 2021, will be hiring Miloud Belkoniene as a full-time post-doc researcher for the duration of the project. The project, that will be jointly based at the University of Zurich and the University of Glasgow, will be the first joint project involving both ZEGRa and the Cogito  group, and will hopefully pave the way for future collaborations. The ZEGRa team wholeheartedly congratulates Anne, Chris and Miloud for this success and is very excited to welcome Miloud amongst us!


The Zegra Group is also pleased to announced the hiring of three new PhD students.

  • Léna Mudry from the University of Fribourg who will write her PhD as part of the Suspension of Judgment project, supervised by Anne Meylan.

  • Glenn Anderau from the from the University of Zurich who is writing his PhD concerning fake fews from a virtue and social epistemology perspective.

  • Benoit Guilielmo from the University of Nice who will also be writng his PhD as part of the Suspension of Judgment project.

We are very happy to welcome Léna, Benoit and  Glenn and wish them full success in their PhD studies
