Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy:
Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy 2014
MCMP at First Sight (Video Abstract)
We take a look back at the MCMP Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students 2014! Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school was aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems. The summer school providede an infrastructure for developing expertise in some of the main formal approaches used in mathematical philosophy, including theories of individual and collective decision-making, agent-based modeling, and epistemic logic. Furthermore, it offered study in an informal setting, lively debate, and a chance to strengthen mathematical self-confidence and independence for female students. Finally, having been located at the MCMP, the summer school also provided a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.
