The Road Less Travelled

Off-stream applications of formal methods


Logicians have devoted considerable e ort to applying formal methods to what are now considered core disciplines of

analytic philosophy: philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language and metaphysics. Researchers in these elds have

been accused of sharpening their knives without actually cutting anything of interest to those outside of philosophy. The

focus of formal methods is changing and our intent for this conference is to further counter the impression of idleness

with respect to philosophy at large. The focus of the workshop is to be on those applications of formal methods in

philosophy which might be of interest to people working on philosophical questions of more direct relevance to human

life. We plan three sessions with the following invited speakers:

Session 1 Applications of formal methods in philosophy

Diderik Batens, Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science, Ghent University (Belgium)

Krister Segerberg, Uppsala University (Sweden)

Katie Steele, London School of Economics and Political Science (UK)

Session 2 Applications of formal methods in social philosophy

Gabriella Pigozzi, Universite Paris-Dauphine (France)

Martin van Hees, University of Amsterdam (Netherlands)

John F. Horty, University of Maryland (USA)

Session 3 Applications of Bayesian methods in philosophy

Luc Bovens, London School of Economics and Political Science (UK)

Lara Buchak, University of California, Berkeley (USA)

Richard Pettigrew, Bristol University, (UK)
