Final Call for papers
Philosophy of Mathematics Workshop: Mathematical aims beyond
justification
The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLWF) at Free
University Brussels (VUB) welcomes abstracts for a workshop on
philosophy of mathematics.
The workshop will be held on December 10-11 2015, at the Royal
Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts, at the centre of
Brussels.
The objective of the workshop will be to understand and evaluate the
idea that mathematicians do not merely pile up proofs of theorems,
but have other aims as well. Philosophy of mathematics can reflect on
what this "extra" could be. A non-exhaustive list of topics that try
to describe such aims is:
- Mathematical explanation
- Mathematical understanding
- Mathematical creativity
- Mathematical discovery
- Mathematical beauty
- Mathematical experimentation
- ...
Invited keynote speakers are:
- Jeremy Avigad (Carnegie Mellon University) (Lecture co-organized by
the Belgian Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science)
- Alan Baker (Swarthmore College)
- Ronny Desmet( Free University Brussel)
- Jean Paul Van Bendegem (Free University Brussels)
We welcome paper proposals within the conference theme. A title and
abstract (300-500 words) should be submitted on Easychair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pmw2015), before September
20.
Scientific Committee:
Jeremy Avigad, Alan Baker, Ronny Desmet, Joachim Frans, Karen
