Set Theory and Higher-Order Logic:
Foundational Issues and Mathematical Developments
London, August 1-6, 2011

This is an interdisciplinary summer school, consisting of four days of
mini-courses (August 1-4) and a subsequent two-day conference (August
5-6), all hosted at the Institute of Philosophy in London. The goal of
this summer school is to provide a forum in which set theorists and
philosophers of mathematics -- as well as students of these
disciplines-- can interact and discuss recent results and debates at
the intersection of set-theory and higher-order logic. Topics to be
represented at the summer school include but are not limited to: the
semantics for higher-order logics, Omega-Logic, groundedness,
set-theoretic geology, interpretability and incompleteness,
predicativity, and formal theories of truth.

The mini-course speakers include: Joan Bagaria (Barcelona), Fernando
Ferreira (Lisbon), ‪Luca Incurvati‬ (Cambridge), Joel Hamkins (CUNY),
Leon Horsten (Bristol), Hannes Leitgeb (Munich), Jouko Väänänen
(Helsinki and Amsterdam), Phillip Welch (Bristol), and Albert Visser
(Utrecht). In addition to a large subset of the mini-course speakers,
the conference speakers include: Donald A. Martin (UCLA) and Gabriel
Uzquiano (Oxford).

This summer school is made possible through generous support provided
by: the Plurals, Predicates, and Paradox Project (European Research
Council), the Ideals of Proof Project (L’Agence nationale de la
recherche), the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (Alexander
von Humboldt Stiftung), and the New Frontiers of Infinity Project
(European Science Foundation).

This support also makes it possible to offer ten 200 GBP student
stipends to help defray costs for students. The stipends will be
allocated on the basis of merit and need. To apply, please send a
brief CV, along with any information about need, to Sean Walsh (email
below) prior to May 1, 2011.

Organized by: Michael Detlefsen (ANR and Notre Dame), Hannes Leitgeb
(Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy), and Øystein Linnebo
