27 - 28 August 2021, Mathematics & Analogical Reasoning, Munich, Germany
Sometimes particular mathematical structures serve scientists as heuristic devices in their own right by giving indications of structural similarities between otherwise unrelated physical systems. And in philosophical discourse, it is often not singular mathematical formulas, but the entire structure of mathematics that is used as an argumentative point of reference. The goal of this conference is to investigate the role of mathematics as a heuristic device for analogical reasoning in science and philosophy.
The conference has been postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
