PRESENTATION (Portuguese and schedule below)

The Centre for Logic, Epistemology and the History of Science at the University of Campinas (CLE/UNICAMP) is pleased to announce the CLE Permanent Seminar on Metaphysics. The main objective is that we have a permanent, friendly, and informal space so that we can discuss works in progress of metaphysics conceived broadly (metaphysics of logic, metaphysics of science, the epistemology of metaphysics, analytical metaphysics, etc.), in addition to creating bridges between the different institutions from Brazil and abroad. The official languages will be English and Portuguese, depending on the presentation. We will do our best to maintain an inclusive space for any language barriers! Questions can be asked in Portuguese, as they will be translated by the organizing committee. We will also have the ``Captions'' service offered by Google Meet.

The official time of the Seminar is from 17:00 to 18:30 pm (GMT+0), on Wednesdays on the Google Meet permanent link below.
