World Logic Day

This event is part of the celebration of the World Logic Day. If you would like to contribute an event as well, please see http://wld.cipsh.international/organise_event.html for further information.


Explanation and understanding are central topics in the philosophy of science. This discipline has made important developments to account for the role explanations play in scientific activities. A current trend is that philosophers emphasize the relation between explanation and understanding, and stress the need for theories of scientific understanding. This events wants to bring together scientists from different fields tackling the question of mathematical explanations both: in the sense of explanation within mathematics as well as mathematical explanations in the sciences.


The number of participants is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore please register as soon as possible. There are no costs associated with registration. To receive the zoom link, please see here for further information:
