CfR, EXUNMA 2: Explanation and understanding with(in) mathematics 2 – WLD 2024 in Brussel (virtual), January 16, 2024

A Zoom meeting to celebrate the World Logic Day 2024 (which is actually two days earlier)

== Topic
Explanation and understanding are central topics in the philosophy of science. This discipline has made important developments to account for the role explanations play in scientific activities. A current trend is that philosophers emphasize the relation between explanation and understanding, and stress the need for theories of scientific understanding. This events wants to bring together scientists from different fields tackling the question of mathematical explanations both: in the sense of explanation within mathematics as well as mathematical explanations in the sciences.
