The summer school takes place in-person at Heinrich-Heine University’s Haus der Universität from 22th – 26th August 2022.


During five days, the schedule will be split into a morning and afternoon session in which internationally highly reputed lecturers offer courses presenting their methods of expertise. The students will have the possibility to apply the methods and study the practical details. In some evening lectures, we will reflect on the limits and potential of empirical methods for the philosophy of mathematics together with prominent philosophers of mathematics. Further, a social get-together and an afternoon excursion is planned to guarantee exchange between the participants.
