Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students
Idea and Motivation
The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organising the sixth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 28 to August 3, 2019 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who want to specialise in mathematical philosophy.
The school’s aim is to encourage female students to engage with mathematical and scientific approaches to philosophical problems, and thereby help to redress the gender imbalance in formal philosophy: it offers the opportunity for study in an informal and interdisciplinary setting, for lively debate, and for the development of a network of students and professors interested in the application of formal methods to philosophy.
This year at the summer school, we will have the following lecture streams:
- Formal Epistemology, led by Anna-Maria Asunta Eder (University of Cologne)
- "Barriers to Entailment", led by Gillian Russell (UNC Chapel Hill)
- Philosophy of Algorithms and Simulations", led by Lena Zuchowski (University of Bristol)
