24-30 July 2016, Third Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, Munich

Date: 24-30 July 2016
Location: Munich
Target audience: excellent female students who want to specialize in mathematical philosophy

Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school is aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems.

This year the focus of the summer school will be to provide an infrastructure for developing expertise in formal approaches used in (1) philosophy of physics, (2) philosophy of biology and social science, and (3) epistemic logic and philosophy of cognition. The summer school will offer the opportunity for study in an informal setting, lively debate, and for the development of a network with students and professors interested in the application of formal methods in philosophy of science. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

The deadline for applications is March 1, 2016. For more information, see http://www.mathsummer.philosophie.uni-muenchen.de/
