Gregor Schneider studied mathematics and philosophy at Tübingen, Trento, Munich and Berlin. He completed his Diploma in mathematics at the LMU (2005) and a PhD in philosophy at Heidelberg (2011). Since March 2011 he is a Visiting Fellow at the Munich Center for mathematical philosophy (LMU).
Gregor Schneider is particularly interested in the historical and systematical connection of mathematics and philosophy. He focuses on ancient philosophy (Plato, ancient mathematics and its metatheory), philosophy of mathematics (foundation of set theory and elementary geometry, structuralism) and logic (formalizability, logic of reflection) with occasional forays in the history of philosophy, religious studies and mathematics. His recent work includes projects on the ancient mathematical method as model of platonic dialectic, the platonic foundation of euclidean geometry, the intent of Paul Finsler's set theoretic work and axioms of set theory by reflection principles.
