Logic and Philosophy of Science

The Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science brings together faculty and students interested in a wide range of topics including: General Philosophy of Science; Philosophy of Physics, Biology, Linguistics, and Social Science; Logic; Foundations and Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic; and Philosophy of Mathematics in Application.

LPS enjoys strong cooperative relations with UCI's Department of Philosophy; in particular, the two units jointly administer a single graduate program leading to the Ph.D. in Philosophy. LPS also has strong connections with several science departments, including mathematics, physics, biology, computer science, economics and mathematical behavioral sciences.
