July 30 – August 5, 2017

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the fourth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 30 to August 5, 2017 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who want to specialize in mathematical philosophy.

Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school is aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems. This year the focus of the summer school will be to provide a framework for developing expertise in formal approaches used in (1) philosophy of language, (2) philosophy of logic, and (3) philosophy of mathematics. The summer school will offer the opportunity for study in an informal setting, for lively debate, and for the development of a network with students and professors interested in the application of formal methods in philosophy. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

We invite applications from female students at an advanced undergraduate level, in a master program, or at an early PhD level. Detailed
information on the application process is available here:
The deadline for applications is March 5, 2017. Decisions will be made by March 20, 2017.
