7-9 April 2016, Workshop "Roots of Deduction", Groningen, The Netherlands

Date: 7-9 April 2016
Location: Groningen, The Netherlands

Over the past five years the VISI research project 'Roots of Deduction', directed by Catarina Dutilh Novaes, has investigated the historical, cognitive and philosophical roots of deduction. The main focus of the project has been a particular multi-agent dialogical account of deduction, the 'built-in opponent' conception of deduction. This has been used in the project to inform analyses of ancient Greek conceptions of logic and deduction; to help us to understand mathematical cognition and cognitive biases; and to shed light on classical and contemporary problems in the philosophy of logic.

The closing workshop of the project is taking place on April 7-9 (starting right after lunch, ending just before lunch) at the Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen.

All welcome, but if you wish to attend the workshop, please drop us a note, as we only have a limited number of spots. For more information, see https://sites.google.com/site/therootsofdeduction/
