DESCRIPTION:The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of
Science (CLWF) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel
(VUB) will host a Masterclass in the Philosophy of
Mathematical Practice with Prof. Dr. José Ferreir
ós (Universidad de Sevilla, Spain) on May, 17-19.
The Masterclass will be composed of three lectures
based on Prof. Ferreirós’ recent book entitled Ma
thematical Knowledge and the Interplay of Practice
s. The tentative titles for the three lectures ar
e as follows: Lecture 1 (Wednesday, 17/5): On Tru
th and History in Mathematics Lecture 2 (Thursday
, 18/5): An Alternative Look at Representations in
Set Theory Lecture 3 (Friday, 19/5): Rethinking
Structuralism: a Conceptualist Approach We inten
d the Masterclass to be a fully interactive event,
with the twofold objective to understand in depth
the materials presented in the lectures, but also
to discuss current work by early career researche
rs (PhD students and Postdocs). The lectures by Pr
of. Ferreirós will take place in the mornings, and
will be followed by afternoon sessions in which e
arly career researchers in the Philosophy of Mathe
matical Practice are invited to present their work
. The goal is to offer early career researchers an
opportunity to discuss their ongoing work in a he
lpful and constructive environment.
