The Logic and Philosophy of Science Seminar (also known as the “friday” seminar)
In addition to conferences and workshops, our group hosts a permanent Seminar on Logic and Philosophy of Science. In the old times, meetings used to take place in room 5 at the former location of the Department of Literature and Philosophy, “Il Pellegrino”, each Friday morning at 11:00 am. This gave the seminar the nickname by means of which it is colloquially referred to up to nowadays.
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 others, the list of its distinguished guests includes: 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.
