Workshop

The Cognitive Basis of Logico-Mathematical Knowledge

The objective of this workshop is to reflect on the cognitive basis of the human abilities to reason abstractly, in mathematics and logic. While looked down on by some major philosophers, these abilities have been extensively studied by psychologists and cognitive scientists; our assumption is that the issue can still benefit from philosophical analysis.
