ILLC professors among those holding new Jin Yuelin Chair at Tsinghua University

Jin Yuelin is the founding father of modern logic in China, as well as a pioneer in establishing bridges in the field of philosophy between China and the West. After receiving his doctorate at Columbia University in 1920, he returned to Beijing to lecture on mathematical logic, and then went on to create the department of philosophy at Tsinghua University. In 2017, Tsinghua University decided to institute a Jin Yuelin Visiting Chair to support the activities of its Logic Center that has been in existence since 2014.
