22-23 April 2010, Philosophy of Mathematics: Sociological Aspects and Mathematical Practice (PhiMSAMP-6), Amsterdam & Utrecht (The Netherlands)

Date: 22-23 April 2010
Location: Amsterdam & Utrecht (The Netherlands)

The Vereniging voor Logica (VvL) invites you cordially to the PhiMSAMP Book Launch (PhiMSAMP-6), held on 22 and 23 April 2010 in Amsterdam and Utrecht.

PhiMSAMP ("Philosophy of Mathematics: Sociological Aspects and Mathematical Practice") is an international research network funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and coordinated from Amsterdam and Utrecht aiming to combine tools from sociology, psychology, educational studies, history and other subjects to provide a philosophy of mathematics that has a closer affinity to actual mathematical research practice than the traditional foundationalist philosophies. The network worked on this from 2006 to 2010 during a number of workshops and conferences; the result of this work is a volume published in the series "Texts in Philosophy". This volume will be presented to the public at the event.

The event also includes the annual General Membership Meeting of the VvL during the lunch break (12:15-13:45) on the 23rd (in Hoog Catharijne, Utrecht).
