SUMMER SCHOOL ON MATHEMATICAL PHILOSOPHY FOR FEMALE STUDENTS 2016

MCMP, LMU Munich
24-30 July 2016
http://www.mathsummer.philosophie.uni-muenchen.de/index.html

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the third Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 24 to July 30, 2016 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who want to specialize in mathematical philosophy.

Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school is aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems. This year the focus of the summer school will be to provide an infrastructure for developing expertise in formal approaches used in (1) philosophy of physics, (2) philosophy of biology and social science, and (3) epistemic logic and philosophy of cognition. The summer school will offer the opportunity for study in an informal setting, lively debate, and for the development of a network with students and professors interested in the application of formal methods in philosophy of science. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS:

We invite applications from female students at an advanced undergraduate level, in a master program, or at an early PhD level. Detailed information on the application process is available here:
