21-23 September 2015, SoTFoM III and the Hyperuniverse Programme, Vienna, Austria

Date: 21-23 September 2015
Location: Vienna, Austria
Deadline: 15 June 2015

The Hyperuniverse Programme, launched in 2012, and currently pursued within a Templeton-funded research project at the Kurt Gödel Research Center in Vienna, aims to identify and philosophically motivate the adoption of new set-theoretic axioms.

The programme intersects several topics in the philosophy of set theory and of mathematics, such as the nature of mathematical (set-theoretic) truth, the universe/multiverse dichotomy, the alternative conceptions of the set-theoretic multiverse, the conceptual and epistemological status of new axioms and their alternative justificatory frameworks.

The aim of SotFoM III+The Hyperuniverse Programme Joint Conference is to bring together scholars who, over the last years, have contributed mathematically and philosophically to the ongoing work and debate on the foundations and the philosophy of set theory, in particular, to the understanding and the elucidation of the aforementioned topics. The three-day conference, taking place September 21-23 at the KGRC in Vienna, will feature invited and contributed speakers.

For more information, see http://sotfom.wordpress.com/ or contact .

We invite (especially young) scholars to send their papers/abstracts, addressing one of the topical strands. Submission deadline: 15 June 2015.
