MCMP Curated Collections

MCMP Curated Collections are thematic selections from the MCMP video archives, hand-picked and carefully assembled by members of the center. As commented playlists they present guided tours through our recordings along the curator's personal perspective on a certain thread of current research in mathematical philosophy. Browse our video compilations here.

"MCMP at First Sight" video abstracts

The MCMP is inviting speakers and lecturers to announce their talks and classes at the MCMP in a personal video abstract. Find our full collection of "First Sights" here.

Interactive Presentations and Format Development

As part of our efforts at the Center we cooperate with Virtuelle Hochschule LMU and the Munich-based broadcaster AFK TV to train the MCMP LMUcast team in camera operation and digital editing. We develop and evaluate new media formats for new talk and lecture modes to communicate mathematical philosophy across various audiences. For example, check out the video teaser we created for "Bridges 2014" in New York, explore our virtual interactive poster presentation as part of the documentation of "Decisions, Games & Logic '12", or explore the Media Packages of our MCMP Round Table Series with edition one on acceptance and edition two on coherence. With the "MCMP at First Sight" clip format and our online video search function above we are testing further ways of making the MCMP's topics even more accessible.

MCMP Online Courses on Coursera

The MCMP explores new forms of collaborative learning – by making use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Learn more about the freely accessible courses on mathematical philosophy and how to enroll through on our Online Courses page.
