about

Philosophical work in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science tends to be strongly integrated with the natural and social sciences and with mathematics.  Faculty and student explore issues in general philosophy of science and meta-philosophy, as well as more specialized studies in five research groups:

  History of Philosophy of Science
  Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics
  Philosophy of Biology and the Behavioral Sciences
  Philosophy of Physics
  Probability, Induction, and Formal Epistemology

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.  More...
