Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students 2019
Idea and Motivation
The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organising the sixth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 28 to August 3, 2019 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who want to specialise in mathematical philosophy.
The school’s aim is to encourage female students to engage with mathematical and scientific approaches to philosophical problems, and thereby help to redress the gender imbalance 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 year at the summer school, we will have the following lecture streams:
- "Norms in Epistemology: Evidential Norms and Coherence Norms", led by Anna-Maria Asunta Eder (University of Cologne)
- "Barriers to Entailment", led by Gillian Russell (UNC Chapel Hill)
- "Philosophy of Algorithms and Simulations", led by Lena Zuchowski (University of Bristol)
Master in Logic and Philosophy of Science
Many students from the summer school go on to study or research at the MCMP. In particular, attendees of the summer school may be interested in applying for our Master program in Logic and Philosophy of Science, details of which may be found on the MCMP website. The deadline for applications to the Master program beginning in the winter semester 2019 is June 10, 2019.
