  International Conference ANR 2013
  Kurt Gödel, philosopher: From Logic to Cosmology

  Université Aix-Marseille
  IHPST (Paris 1/CNRS/ENS)
  SND (Paris 4/CNRS)

  July 11-13, 2013, Aix-en-Provence

  Confirmed invited speakers are:
  John Dawson (Pennsylvania State University, USA)
  Akihiro Kanamori (Boston University, USA)
  Eberhard Knobloch (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)
  Göran Sundholm (Universiteit Leiden, Netherlands)
  Richard Tieszen (California State University, San Jose, USA)

  Gödel’s writings published during his lifetime show his dual  
interest in scientific
  questions and in fundamental philosophical questions. The posthumous  
publication of
  certain manuscripts and talks enables one better to understand this  
double interest in
  science and in philosophy. On the one hand, Gödel developed most of  
his scientific
  results in order to solve or clarify certain philosophical  
questions. On the other hand,
  his scientific work in the foundations of mathematics and in  
cosmology enriched his
  philosophical thought on, for example, the a priori classification  
of philosophical
  systems, and on the relations between the notions of concept and  
object.  Hence, not only
  did Gödel, as is well known, believe that philosophy might become an  
exact theory,
  provided that one does for metaphysics what Newton did for physics;  
he should moreover be
  aligned with Descartes, Leibniz, and other early modern philosophers  
who believed that
  science and philosophy are inseparable.

  The conference will explore several features of Gödel’s philosophy  
that emerge from the
  unpublished manuscripts Max-Phil, which have been partly transcribed  
by the research
  group directed by Gabriella Crocco at CEPERC (Université Aix-Marseille).  The
  presentation of the complete transcriptions of Max-Phil IX-XV will  
be accompanied by an
  exploration of Gödel’s philosophy of logic, mathematics, and physics  
by international
  specialists and young Gödel scholars.
  Submissions for individual contributions are invited on the  
interaction between science
  and philosophy in Gödel’s writings. Topical strands may include:
  1. Gödel’s remarks on philosophical systems
  2. the notions of concepts and objects
  3. the distinction between subjective and objective analysis of the real
  4. human will and God’s omnipotence
  5. the relations between Gödel’s theory of concepts and his  
scientific results
  6. time and matter
  7. evil and freedom
  8. Gödel’s conception of mathematics in its relation to philosophy
  Potential contributors will have to submit a title, a short abstract  
(max. 200 words) and
  an extended abstract (1000 words), ready for blind refereeing. The  
abstracts should be
  sent to the following address: goedelphilosopher2013 (at) gmail  
(dot) com. The official
  language of the Conference is English.

  Submission deadline: April 14, 2013 (notifications will be sent by
