THEMATIC SCHOOLS

Thematic School CNRS Young Researchers "Contemporary Mathematics and Philosophy" II, 2013


Saint-Flour, France, 3-7 June 2013


This School is organised by the Institut de Mathématiques of Toulouse (UMR 5219) and the Research Unit SPHERE (UMR 7219). Other sponsors are : INSMI and CNRS INSHS, University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier, University Paris Diderot and its Department History and Philosophy of Science, MSH of Clermont-Ferrand, PHIER (EA 3297), IREPH (EA 373) and CIRPHLES (USR 3308). It is particularly intended for young scholars and researchers : (Ph.D. and master 2 students, post-docs), mathematicians and philosophers.



Purpose
Develop discussion and collaboration between mathematicians and philosophers of mathematics in confronting the problems emerging from practical mathematics at work in contemporary research (eg, algebraic geometry and combinatorics) to those issued of current philosophical field (for example, the philosophy of mathematical practice).


This is both to bring the great classical philosophical questions (objectivity, unity, ...) to the test of contemporary mathematics but also, conversely, to generate new leads in the philosophy of mathematics that can account for a number specificities and issues brought by contemporary mathematics.
