LOGICISM TODAY, 14-17 June 2010, Besse-en-Chandesse (France).
The previous announcement contained a misprint:
Submissions should consist of anonymous papers of
no more than 7000 characters. (The previous
announcement mentioned erroneously: "of no more than 5000 words.")
Workshop hosted by Philosophies et Rationalités
(PHIER) from the Université Blaise Pascal and the
Institut Universitaire de France (IUF), with the
support of the Institut de Recherche
Philosophique (IREPH) from the Université Paris Ouest Nanterre.
Organizers: Sébastien Gandon (PHIER), Brice Halimi (IREPH).
Logicism is today a hot topic in philosophy of
mathematics. It is also a standpoint whose
coherence and unity are difficult to delineate,
owing to the diversity of all logicist
philosophical stances and to the heterogeneity of
the issues at stake. In the literature, however,
the debates usually focus on the relationship
between logicism and its main rivals
(structuralism, intuitionism, practice-based
), which contributes to gloss
over deep discrepancies among logicists. The aim
of this workshop is to gather philosophers
working from within a logicist perspective (or
from within a perspective close to logicism) so
as to question the coherence and unity of the
movement - that is, both to make apparent the
conceptual tensions that divide logicism, and to
outline possible rapprochements between different
logicist approaches of mathematics. For more, see
The three-day meeting will feature both invited
and contributed talks. The invited speakers, who
have confirmed their participation, are:
- Patricia Blanchette, Notre Dame University
- Bob Hale, University of Sheffields
- Gregory Landini, The University of Iowa
- Øystein Linnebo, Birkbeck University of London
- Marco Panza, IHPST (Paris)
- Sean Walsh, Birkbeck University of London
- Crispin Wright, NIP (Aberdeen).
We invite papers that have a novel contribution
to make in the area of logicism and philosophy of
mathematics. Submissions should consist of
anonymous papers of no more than 7000 characters.
Papers for submission should be prepared for
anonymous refereeing. The languages of the workshop are English and French.
The deadline for submission is February, the
15th. Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged
by email. A scientific committee will evaluate
all submissions and announce its decisions by the end of March.
Submissions should be sent by email in DOC, RTF,
or PDF format to the following address:
