SoCal PhilMath + PhilLogic + FoM Workshops

SoCal PhilMath + PhilLogic + FoM is a small series of one-day workshops on topics in philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of logic, philosophical logic, and foundations of mathematics, designed to provide a forum in which members of the southern California community with interests in these topics can meet, interact, and learn about each other’s new work as well as those of the occasional external speaker. The series is organized and sponsored by the USC School of Philosophy, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at UC Irvine, the UC Irvine Center for the Advancement of Logic, its Philosophy, History, and Applications, the UCLA Logic Center, the UCLA Philosophy Department, and the Kurt Gödel Society.
