The impact of the development of formal logic on philosophy in the 20th Century is well-documented. More recently the rise of formal philosophy, and in particular the application of formal methods in epistemology and semantics has proved that logical and mathematical methods have a bright future in philosophy.

With his work on Quine, P. Gochet played an important role in the former movement. Yet, he was also one of the first to recognize the importance of the interactive and dynamic turn in epistemology and formal semantics that characterize the latter movement.

Speakers: Patrick Blackburn, Jaakko Hintikka (TBC), Philippe de Rouilhan, Dov Gabbay, Susan Haack, Gerhard Heinzmann, Hourya Sinaceur, Jean-Maurice Monnoyer, Johan van Benthem, Vincent Hendricks, Jacques Dubucs, Dagfinn Føllesdal, Alex Orenstein, Shahid Rahman.
