University of Eastern Piedmont, Alessandria, Italy
September 8, 2023
The Italian Network for the Philosophy of Mathematics will organise a symposium on Formal Methods at the 15th Conference of the Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy (September 7-9, 2023).
Invited speaker: Greg Restall (University of St. Andrews)
Description: Formal methods are increasingly central to contemporary philosophy. Examples include, among others, logic, set theory, proof theory, model theory, and computability theory. The aim of this workshop is to discuss recent trends in formal philosophy, as well as cutting-edge methodologies and results. We seek contributions on (but not limited to) the following topics: Formal methods and philosophical methodology, historical roots of formal philosophy (Frege, Russell, Peirce, Cassirer, Hilbert, Carnap), philosophy of logical notation, history and philosophy of logic, higher-order logics, philosophical logic, formal semantics, formal epistemology, non-classical logics and the foundations of mathematics, and logical pluralism.
Organiser: Luca Zanetti (IUSS Pavia)
Up to 5 talks will be selected through blind procedure.
Abstracts: Length of submitted abstracts: (i) a short abstract (300 words) and (ii) a long abstract (1000 words).
Abstracts must be submitted through Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sifa23. Please select the Logic and Philosophy of Science session and add “Symposium on Formal Methods” to the title of your abstract. The long abstract should be uploaded in the field “Paper”.
