Johan van Benthem delivers opening lecture at CLMPS

The great tradition of international Congresses of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science (CLMPS), was started in 1960 at Stanford University. Every four years these meetings bring together logicians and philosophers of science from all over the world to present and discuss their current work. The programme covers all systematic and historical aspects of formal logic, general philosophy of science, and philosophical issues of special sciences. The theme of the 15th Congress was "Models and Modelling".

The opening lecture of CLMPS'15 was delivered by Johan van Benthem and titled 'Logic in Play'. The video of the lecture is available at http://video.helsinki.fi/Arkisto/flash.php?id=20447.

CLMPS is one of the most important activities of the Division of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science (DLMPS), which is one of two divisions in the International Union for History and Philosophy of Science (IUHPS). The other division in IUHPS is the Division of History of Science and Technology (DHST). IUHPS is a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU).
