30 July - 5 August 2017, Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students 2017, Munich, Germany

Date: 30 July - 5 August 2017
Location: Munich, Germany

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the fourth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students. 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 a framework for developing expertise in formal approaches used in (1) philosophy of language, (2) philosophy of logic, and (3) philosophy of mathematics. The summer school will offer the opportunity for study in an informal setting, for lively debate, and for the development of a network with students and professors interested in the application of formal methods in philosophy. 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 5, 2017.
