The phlox research group and the Emmy Noether Group Relevance are delighted to announce that the 2024 Hamburg/Vienna Summer School will be taught by Ted Sider (Rutgers). This year's topic will be *Fundamentality in Metaphysics and Philosophy of Science*.


The course will explore connections between metaphysical issues about fundamentality, and the philosophy of physics. We'll begin with a survey of the metaphysical issues, concentrating on David Lewis’s theory of natural properties. Then we'll discuss some of the following topics: laws of nature, the structure of space, symmetries, structural realism, and the role of mathematics in physical theories.

The course will take place from Monday, July 15th to Friday, July 19th 2024 at the University of Vienna. For more information, please visit
