21-23 May 2014, Summer School and Workshop "Abstraction: Philosophy and Mathematics", Oslo, Norway

Date: 21-23 May 2014
Location: Oslo, Norway
Deadline: 15 February 2014

This combined summer school and workshop aims to take stock of the abstractionist programme after three decades of intensive philosophical and technical study, as well as to make progress on some questions that have recently received much attention, such as the metaontology of abstraction and the variety of responses to the bad company problem, including the possibility of a more 'dynamic' approach to abstraction (recently advocated by Øystein Linnebo, James Studd, and others), which sees abstraction as a process whereby ever greater domains of abstracta are 'generated'.

For more information, see http://philevents.org/event/show/12908. For any questions, please contact Salvatore Florio at

A limited number of contributed papers will be accepted for presentation. For consideration, please submit an extended abstract or a complete paper, ready for blind review, to by February 15, 2014.
