International Workshop on Philosophy of Mathematics

The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLWF) invites all to Mathematical Aims Beyond Justification, an international workshop on the philosophy of mathematics.

The workshop's objective is to understand and evaluate the idea that mathematicians do not merely pile up proofs of theorems, but also have other ambitions, intentions, and aspirations. National and international speakers will reflect on mathematicians' aims, in addition to justifying mathematical results.

The workshop will take place at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and Arts on the 10th and 11th of December.

Visit the workshop's website for more information

A complete programme and information on the registration procedure are to be found here as well. Note that registrations are expected before the 1st of December.
