Workshop YRD4 (Louvain-la-Neuve/Bruxelles, 26-27/09/2014)

This year, the workshop will be organized in partnership with the « Troisièmes rencontres doctorales internationales en philosophie des sciences », which will be held in Louvain-la-Neuve by the Société de Philosophie des Sciences on the 25th and 26th of September. Once again, our workshop will provide an ideal opportunity for young researchers (PhD students, young postdocs) working in the fields of Logic, Philosophy of Science and History of Science in Belgian universities to present their work to a larger community of emerging and established scholars in these fields. The keynote speakers will be Mieke Boon (University of Twente) and Christoph Lüthy (Radboud University Nijmegen).
