Summer School for Widening Participation in Mathematical Philosophy

Idea and Motivation

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the Summer School for Widening Participation in Mathematical Philosophy, which will take place from Monday 22 July to Friday 26 July, 2024 in Munich, Germany. Following a series of eight successful MCMP-organized summer schools on mathematical philosophy for female students, the MCMP will this year broaden its offering, with a summer school for women and members of other groups that are under-represented in formal philosophy. These groups include under-represented gender identities, races and ethnicities, people with disabilities, people from low income and non-academic family backgrounds.

The school's aim is to encourage students to engage with mathematical and scientific approaches to philosophical problems, and thereby help to redress the under-representation of women and other marginalized groups in formal philosophy. It offers the opportunity for study in an informal and interdisciplinary setting, for lively debate, and for the development of a network of students and professors interested in the application of formal methods to philosophy.

This edition of the summer school will feature lectures by:

In addition, there will be an evening lecture by Barbara Vetter (FU Berlin): “First-generation philosophers: why they matter, and how to support them”.

The summer school will also feature talks by members of the MCMP.

The organizing committee consists of Nicola Bonatti, Vanessa Carr, John Dougherty, Marta Ferreira Esteves, Levin Hornischer, Alessandra Marra, Francesco Nugnes, Hannah Pillin, Toby C.P. Solomon, Tom Sterkenburg, Zhouwanyue Yang.
