  • (New) 23 September 2021, Reading Group (historical) Epistemology

    Date & Time: Thursday 23 September 2021, 14:00-15:00

    In the academic year 2021-2022, the Vossius Center will launch a close reading group with a focus on epistemology. We will read and discuss texts that the members of the group find relevant and interesting. Meetings will, ideally, take place on location, and there will be no presentations, just questions and discussion.

    As a text to start with, we propose the recently translated On Logic and the Theory of Science (1942, Engl. Trans. with Urbanomic & Sequence Press, 2021) by Jean Cavaillès. The first discussion topic will be chapter 1 of this book (pp. 39-69).

  • 8 - 19 August 2022, 33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2022), Galeway, Ireland

    Date: 8 - 19 August 2022
    Location: Galeway, Ireland
    Deadline: Tuesday 15 June 2021

    Under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language, and Information (FoLLI), the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) runs every year. Except for 2021, where the school will be virtual, it runs in a different European country each year. It takes place over two weeks in the summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both introductory and advanced levels, and attracts around 400 participants from all over the world.

    The main focus of ESSLLI is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited evening lectures.
