Workshop "Foundations in Mathematics: Modern Views" (FMV 2018)

We want to investigate the landscape of current views on the foundations of mathematics. How do these views relate? Does mathematics even need a (uniform) foundation or should this idea be abandoned? Is mathematical practice justification enough? Should a foundational theory reflect our epistemic access to mathematics? How might future mathematics look like? Given the current debate, will foundational issues become irrelevant? Will they be resolved?


The workshop is a continuation of a series of conferences on logic and foundations of mathematics (Formal Mathematics, Bonn 2015; FOMUS, Bielefeld 2016; LMP, Goettingen 2017). The meeting is designed as a hybrid between a research conference and a winter school. In addition to the scientific debate, it aims to foster a community of young scientists concerned with foundational questions.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the ​German Federal Academic Scholarship Foundation ("Stipendiaten machen Programm"), the Max Weber-Programme of the Free State of Bavaria ("Stipendiaten aktiv!"), and the Munich Centre for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP).
