This workshop is a follow-up to a previous meeting on the /Originsand 
Varieties of 
Logicism/ (http://www.iusspavia.it/news.php?id=2262&menu=menu-news.html). 
Among traditional foundational programmes in the philosophy of 
mathematics, Logicism still attracts much attention, witnessed by a 
revival of studies on its originsand on logicist-oriented issues tightly 
connected with present research developments. By focussing on these 
issues, and extending the range of topics from the previous conference, 
the workshop aims at providing both further historical investigations on 
full-flegded Logicists and other authors standing in connection or 
opposition to such a view - such as Frege, Wittgestein, Ramsey, and 
Hilbert - and theoretical explorations of recent research - such as 
numerical cognition, ordinal abstraction, Neo-Logicism - in order to 
shed new light on the legacy of various kinds of Logicism for 
contemporary philosophy of mathematics.
