5th International Summer School in Philosophy of Physics
Space, time and matter: new directions in the philosophy of physics
The Forum Scientiarum (University of Tuebingen) kindly invites 20 graduate students and young researchers in the field of philosophy, physics and mathematics, to apply for the 5th Summer School on the History and Philosophy of Science:
Tuebingen, August 1st–August 5th, 2016
Probability and Quantum Mechanics
five lectures by Guido Bacciagaluppi, Utrecht University
and a keynote lecture by Christopher A. Fuchs, University of Massachusetts Boston.
The deadline for applications to participate in our (close to) Chicago summer school is very soon: Wednesday, 16 March. There is no registration fee, and we provide room and board. Please note that the summer school is planned for students with very different backgrounds, generally coming from both physics and philosophy. Don’t hesitate to ask if you are not sure whether this would be for you.
