Female Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy 2022


The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organising the eighth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held summer 2022, from 01.08.2022-05.08.2022.
The summer school, running yearly since 2014, is open to all women students who want to specialise in mathematical philosophy. The school’s aim is to encourage students to engage with mathematical and scientific approaches to philosophical problems. This is with the view that such events both recognise and help address the gender imbalance in formal philosophy. It also 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.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the success of last year’s school, the 2022 summer school will take place entirely online.

This year, we will presumably have the following lecture streams:

Atoosa Kasirzedeh: Explanations in mathematical and computational sciences.
Emily Sullivan: Idealizations in machine learning.

More information will be available soon and registration will open in May.
The organising committee for this year’s summer school consists of Alice Murphy, William D’Alessandro, Jürgen Landes, Nicola Bonatti and John Dougherty.
