14-15 Septembe 2006, Workshop "Towards a New Epistemology of Mathematics", Berlin, Germany

Date: 14-15 Septembe 2006
Location: Berlin, Germany
Deadline: 1 April 2006

Traditionally, there has been a deep divide between philosophy of mathematics dealing with foundational issues (questions about mathematical ontology, connections between logic and mathematics, and the proper axiomatic framework) and sociological and didactical approaches to mathematics deadling with a description of mathematical practice (including mathematics education and related matters). Currently, we witness this picture undergoing considerable changes. Recent developments question the special character of philosophy of mathematics as traditionally conceived. Our workshop is devoted to developing this line of development further, putting special emphasis on the epistemological issues involved.
