Morning Workshop in Philosophy of Science - 25 May 2018

Pubblicato: Venerdì 25 maggio 2018

Upcoming Talks
Friday, 25 May, 11:00-13:30
Aula 8, Palazzo Nuovo (first floor)

The "Science & More" talks are a series of work in progress talks at the Center for Logic, Language and Cognition (LLC) in Turin and run by the ERC project. We use it to present our own work in progress and to learn about the ongoing research of our colleagues. From time to time, also speakers from outside Turin present their work.

Thematically, the talks are centered around philosophy of science, but we are also open to topics from related areas (e.g., logic, epistemology, philosophy of language) and other philosophical subdisciplines where exact methods are applied.

The talks take place on Wednesdays from noon (=12:00) to 13:00, followed by a joint lunch in one of the surrounding restaurants. They are meant to be low-key events, open to everybody and aiming at the improvement of ongoing work through critical, but constructive discussion.

The days planned for spring 2018 are 11 and 18 April, 9 and 23 May, and 6 and 27 June. Additional talks may be scheduled.
