The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the
Summer School for Widening Participation in Mathematical Philosophy,
which will take place from Monday 22 July to Friday 26 July, 2024 in
Munich, Germany. Following a series of eight successful MCMP-organized
summer schools on mathematical philosophy for female students, the MCMP
will this year broaden its offering, with a summer school for women and
members of other groups that are under-represented in formal philosophy.
These groups include under-represented gender identities, races and
ethnicities, people with disabilities, people from low income and
non-academic family backgrounds.
The school’s aim is to encourage students to engage with mathematical
and scientific approaches to philosophical problems, and thereby help to
redress the under-representation of women and other marginalized groups
in formal philosophy. It offers the opportunity for study in an informal
and interdisciplinary setting, for lively debate, and for the
development of a network of students and professors interested in the
application of formal methods to philosophy.
This edition of the summer school will feature lectures by:
Jingyi Wu (LSE): “Models of Diversity and Injustice”
Sara Uckelman (Durham University): “What History of Logic Can Teach Us
About the Future of Logic”
In addition, there will be an evening lecture by Barbara Vetter (FU
Berlin): “First-generation philosophers: why they matter, and how to
The summer school will also feature talks by members of the MCMP.
The organizing committee consists of Nicola Bonatti, Vanessa Carr, John
Dougherty, Marta Ferreira Esteves, Levin Hornischer, Alessandra Marra,
Francesco Nugnes, Hannah Pillin, Toby C.P. Solomon, Tom Sterkenburg,
