PhiMSAMP
("Philosophy of Mathematics: Sociological Aspects and Mathematical
Practice") is an international research network funded by the Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft and coordinated from Bonn, Amsterdam and
Utrecht
aiming
to combine tools from sociology, psychology, educational studies, history
and other subjects to provide a philosophy of mathematics that has a
closer affinity to actual mathematical research practice than the
traditional foundationalist philosophies.
The network worked on this from
2006 to 2010 during a number of workshops and conferences; one main result
of
this work is a volume published in the series "Texts in Philosophy". This
volume will be presented to the public at the event.
The event is organised under the auspices of the Nederlandse Vereniging
voor Logica en Wijsbegeerte der Exacte Wetenschappen (VvL) and
will
include its 2010 annual member meeting. It
will take place in Amsterdam on Thursday and in Utrecht on Friday.
All philosophers and logicians are cordially invited to attend (no
registration necessary).
