The Friday Seminar

In addition to conferences and workshops, our group hosts a permanent Seminar on Logic and Philosophy of Science. Meetings take place in room 5 at the Department of Literature and Philosophy,   “Il Pellegrino”, each Friday morning at 11:00 am.

Usual speakers are well known scientists, international researchers or even doctoral students presenting their researches or discussing some important theoretical or philosophical topics.

The Friday Seminar takes its origins from the meetings held at Il Pellegrino under the guidance of Ettore Casari, and has hosted very famous logicians and philosophers. Among the others some distinguished guests had been: W.v.O. Quine, B. Van Fraassen, S. French, P. Martin-Loef, H. Schwichtenberg, W. Pohlers, S. Feferman, G. Jaeger, M. Rathjen, H. Ono, J.Y. Girard, D. Prawitz, P. Horwich, V. Halbach, D. Isaacson, P. Schuster and others.
